This book provides the fundamental knowledge of the classical matching theory problems. It builds up the bridge between the matching theory and the 5G wireless communication resource allocation problems. The potentials and challenges of implementing the semi-distributive matching theory framework into the wireless resource allocations are analyzed both theoretically and through implementation examples. Academics, researchers, engineers, and so on, who are interested in efficient distributive wireless resource allocation solutions, will find this book to be an exceptional resource.
This brief introduces overlapping coalition formation games (OCF games), a novel mathematical framework from cooperative game theory that can be used to model, design and analyze cooperative scenarios in future wireless communication networks. The concepts of OCF games are explained, and several algorithmic aspects are studied. In addition, several major application scenarios are discussed. These applications are drawn from a variety of fields that include radio resource allocation in dense wireless networks, cooperative spectrum sensing for cognitive radio networks, and resource management for crowd sourcing. For each application, the use of OCF games is discussed in detail in order to show how this framework can be used to solve relevant wireless networking problems. Overlapping Coalition Formation Games in Wireless Communication Networks provides researchers, students and practitioners with a concise overview of existing works in this emerging area, exploring the relevant fundamental theories, key techniques, and significant applications.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security, GameSec 2014, held in Los Angeles, CA, USA, in November 2014. The 16 revised full papers presented together with 7 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The covered topics cover multiple facets of cyber security that include: rationality of adversary, game-theoretic cryptographic techniques, vulnerability discovery and assessment, multi-goal security analysis, secure computation, economic-oriented security, and surveillance for security. Those aspects are covered in a multitude of domains that include networked systems, wireless communications, border patrol security, and control systems.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Game Theory for Networks, GameNets 2016, held in Kelowna, Canada, in May 2016. The 13 papers were carefully selected from 26 submissions and cover topics such as algorithmic game theory, game models and theories, game theories in wireless networks, design and analysis of economic games.

Spectrum Sharing in Wireless Networks: Fairness, Efficiency, and Security provides a broad overview of wireless network spectrum sharing in seven distinct sections: The first section examines the big picture and basic principles, explaining the concepts of spectrum sharing, hardware/software function requirements for efficient sharing, and future trends of sharing strategies. The second section contains more than 10 chapters that discuss differing approaches to efficient spectrum sharing. The authors introduce a new coexistence and sharing scheme for multi-hop networks, describe the space-time sharing concept, introduce LTE-U, and examine sharing in broadcast and unicast environments. They t...
