A Controlled Coalitional Game for Wireless Connection Sharing and Bandwidth Allocation in Mobile Social Networks
Mobile social networks have been introduced as a new efficient (i.e., minimize resource usage) and effective (i.e., maximize the number of target recipients) way to disseminate content and information to a particular group of mobile users sharing the same interests. In this paper, we investigate how the content providers and the network operator can interact to distribute content in a mobile social network.
