Liu, Wang Co-Author New Book on Cognitive Radio


ECE Professor and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher K. J. Ray Liu and alumna Beibei Wang (Ph.D., EE, ’09), a former advisee of Prof. Liu’s who is now with Qualcomm, have co-authored a new book titled “Cognitive Radio Networking and Security: A Game-Theoretic View.”

The book, published by Cambridge University Press, presents the fundamentals of designing, implementing, and deploying cognitive radio communication and networking systems. Uniquely, the book focuses on game theory and its applications to various aspects of cognitive networking.

With the rapid growth of new wireless devices and applications over the past decade, the demand for wireless radio spectrum is increasing relentlessly. Cognitive radio networking provides a framework for making the best possible use of limited spectrum resources, and is currently revolutionizing the telecommunications industry. The book covers in detail the core aspects of cognitive radio, including cooperation, situational awareness, learning, and security mechanisms and strategies. This is an ideal reference for researchers, students and professionals in industry who need to learn the applications of game theory to cognitive networking.
