Front Cover
Academic Press, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 323 pages
1 Review

* The first tutorial-style book that gives all the relevant theory at the right level of rigor, for the wireless communications engineer.

* Bridges the gap between theory and practice by giving examples and case studies showing how game theory can solve real-word problems.

* Contains algorithms and techniques to implement game theory in wireless terminals.

Written by leading experts in the field, Game Theory and Learning for Wireless Networks Covers how theory can be used to solve prevalent problems in wireless networks such as power control, resource allocation or medium access control. With the emphasis now on promoting 'green' solutions in the wireless field where power consumption is minimized, there is an added focus on developing network solutions that maximizes the use of the spectrum available.

With the growth of distributed wireless networks such as Wi-Fi and the Internet; the push to develop ad hoc and cognitive networks has led to a considerable interest in applying game theory to wireless communication systems. Game Theory and Learning for Wireless Networks is the first comprehensive resource of its kind, and is ideal for wireless communications R&D engineers and graduate students.

About the author (2011)

Samson received his BSc and Agr gation degree in Applied Physics from cole Normale Sup rieure (Cachan) and his MSc and PhD in Signal Processing from cole Nationale Sup rieure des T l communications (Paris). Professional experience. He has been working with Motorola Labs for three years (1999, 2000, 2001) and with France T l com R&D for two years (2002, 2003). Since 2004, he has joined the CNRS and Sup lec. Since 2004, he is also Charg d'Enseignement at cole Polytechnique. His broad interests lie in the areas of communications, signal processing and information theory with a special emphasis on game theory for wireless communications. Samson Lasaulce is the recipient of the 2007 ACM/ICST International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools (VALUETOOLS) and 2009 International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications (CROWNCOM) best student paper awards. Elena Veronica Belmega, who is a PhD student under my supervision, was awarded with the 2009 Academy of Sciences - L'Oreal - Unesco award for young women in sciences in France.
