Abstract

The objective of this paper is to propose a reduceddimension resource allocation scheme in the context of cognitive radio system in presence of co-channel interference between users. We assume a multicarrier transmission for both the primary and secondary systems. Instead of optimizing the powers over all sub-carriers, the sub-carriers are grouped into clusters of sub-carriers, where the power of each sub-carrier is directly related to the power of the correspondent cluster. The power optimization is done only over the set of clusters instead of all sub-carriers which can significantly reduce the complexity of the resource allocation problem. The performance loss of the reduced dimension solution with respect to the optimal solution, where the optimization is carried over all active sub-carriers, allows trading-off complexity versus performance. Numerical evaluation indeed revealed that a limited performance loss occurs by optimizing over a reduced set of clusters instead of the full optimization in the context of cognitive radio systems.
