Cooperative techniques in Wireless Communications: a game- and information- theoretic analysis

Farshad Shams
This dissertation consists in two parts. In the first part (Chapter 1-3) we study the notion of cooperative game theory and its applications to network engineering problems. The tools of cooperative game theory are shown to be advantageous for obtaining high-performance and good results in terms of fairness, and stability. In particular, the first part describes a theoretical framework for the design and analysis of resource allocation algorithms for wireless networks using OFDMA technology in...
