Device-to-device (D2D) communication has been well recognized as a promising paradigm to improve user experiences in cellular networks by reusing licensed spectrum. However, design, analysis, and optimization of D2D communication require multidisciplinary knowledge, including wireless communication, signal processing, and economic theory. In this paper, the authors developed an innovative resource allocation scheme, to multiplex the communications of multiple D2D users with cellular users. The key idea is to use combinatorial auction theory for allocating radio resources when D2D communication works as an underlay, and investigate the interference relationship between D2D and cellular users.
