    On the security of cooperative cognitive radio networks with distributed beamforming

    This paper investigates the secrecy performance of amplify-and-forward (AF)-relaying cooperative cognitive radio networks (CCRNs) over Rayleigh-fading channels. Specifically, we consider practical passive eave...

    FTN multicarrier transmission based on tight Gabor frames

    A multicarrier signal can be synthesized thanks to a symbol sequence and a Gabor family (i.e., a regularly time–frequency shifted version of a generator pulse). In this article, we consider the case where the ...

    Neighbors-Aware Proportional Fair scheduling for future wireless networks with mixed MAC protocols

    In this paper, we consider a beyond-5G scenario, where two types of users, denoted as scheduled and uncoordinated nodes, coexist on the same set of radio resources for sending data to a base station. Scheduled no...
