Game theory for wireless communications and sensor networks
The ever-increasing demand for reliable and ubiquitous high-speed data communications and environment sensing services calls for new challenges in the design and the optimization of wireless networks, which may benefit from the adoption of sophisticated signal processing techniques at large. Recently, game theory has emerged as an effective framework for the network design, since it provides analytical tools to predict the outcome of interactions among rational entities. This tutorial provides an overview of the relevant applications of game theory, focusing on state-of-the-art techniques for resource allocation. The main focus will be on noncooperative techniques, although recent advances in the field of cooperative game theory will be also included in the discussion to provide a different perspective in the class of problems.
Marco Luise is a Full Professor of Telecommunications at the University of Pisa, Italy. After receiving his M.E. and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Pisa, he was a Research Fellow of the European Space Agency (ESA) at ESTEC Noordwijk, the Netherlands, a Researcher of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), at the Centro Studio Metodi Dispositivi Radiotrasmissioni (CSMDR), Pisa, and an Associate Professor at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Pisa. Prof. Luise served as an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Communications and of the European Transactions on Telecommunications. He was the founder and first (co)-Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Navigation and Observation, and is now an Associate Editor of the Journal of Communications and Networks. Recently, Prof. Luise was the general chairman of EUSIPCO 2006, the general co-chair of European Wireless 2010, the general co-chair of the IEEE Intl. Conf. Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Process. (ICASSP 2014), and the project manager of the FP7 NEWCOM#. His main research interests lie in the broad area of communication theory, with particular emphasis on wireless communications, mobile and satellite communications, positioning systems, and software-defined radios.
