A Game-Theoretical Approach to Resource Allocation in Wireless Networks

Abstract : A multiuser wireless environment is a highly structured system where competition and cooperation coexist. The aim of this thesis is to illustrate the role and the applications of game theory to the resource allocation problem in selforganizing multiuser wireless networks. Various game-theoretical tools will be considered, including strategic form games with complete information, potential games, Bayesian games, and Nash bargaining games. There are four main results in this thesis. First, non-cooperative games with complete information are introduced to study the resource allocation problem in the context of small-cell wireless networks. It is shown that this game can be viewed as a potential game. Thus, the existence and convergence of equilibrium can be readily addressed. Second, non-cooperative games with incomplete information are introduced to study a distributed resource allocation problem in the context of fading multiple access channels. This Bayesian game formulation is important from a practical point of view, as wireless devices can have local information but can barely access to global information on the network status. Further, coupled constraints games as well as various fairness concepts are introduced to study the rate allocation problem in the capacity region of multiple access channels. The concept of normalized equilibrium is adopted to address the equilibrium selection problem. Finally, Nash bargaining games are introduced to improve the non-cooperative system performance of the small-cell wireless networks.
