Abstract

Considering an ad hoc cognitive radio network, this paper presents channel assignment methods that can be used by a cognitive radio node to select a channel for communication. The proposed channel assignment methods aim to maximize spectral efficiency, minimize transmit power, or maximize data rate. When a number of available channels are detected, based on the proposed methods, a cognitive radio node can decide a suitable channel to use. These methods are executed distributively in cognitive radio nodes without using central controllers. This reduces the complexity of spectrum sharing in cognitive radio networks.
