Book Description

Cooperative Cognitive Radio Networks: The Complete Spectrum Cycle provides a solid understanding of the foundations of cognitive radio technology, from spectrum sensing, access, and handoff to routing, trading, and security. Written in a tutorial style with several illustrative examples, this comprehensive book:

  • Gives an overview of cognitive radio systems and explains the different components of the spectrum cycle
  • Features step-by-step analyses of the different algorithms and systems, supported by extensive computer simulations, figures, tables, and references
  • Fulfills the need for a single source of information on all aspects of the spectrum cycle, including the physical, link, medium access, network, and application layers

Offering a unifying view of the various approaches and methodologies, Cooperative Cognitive Radio Networks: The Complete Spectrum Cycle presents the state of the art of cognitive radio technology, addressing all phases of the spectrum access cycle.

"... a good source for a beginner in the research area of cognitive radios. ... The author does a very good job of providing a broad overview of the spectrum cycle of CR networks from a basic introduction to a discussion of security issues. The chapters are written well and have a good combination of explanations and mathematical formulations. The exhaustive references at the end of the chapters will also aid in follow-up reading."
