Game Theory for Multiple Access and Resource Allocation in Wireless Networks
Instructors: Ekram Hossain, University of Manitoba, Canada and Dusit Niyato, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
The tutorial will provide a crash course on the different techniques for game theoretic modeling of the multiple access problem in wireless systems and the state-of-the-art research on this topic. An intensive (but friendly) introduction to the various game theory models (e.g., noncooperative/cooperative, static/dynamic, and complete/incomplete information games), their fundamental concepts and properties, and their applications in designing multiple access and resource allocation methods in wireless networks will be presented. Time-division multiple access (TDMA), frequency-division multiple access (FDMA), and code-division multiple access (CDMA), ALOHA, and carrier sense multiple access (CSMA)-based wireless networks will be given. Also, game models for the multiple access schemes in dynamic spectrum access-based cognitive radio networks will be presented.
