A game approach for multi-channel allocation in multi-hop wireless networks
Channel allocation was extensively investigated in the framework of cellular networks, but it was rarely studied in the wireless ad-hoc networks, especially in the multi-hop ad-hoc networks. In this paper, we study the competitive multiradio channel allocation problem in multi-hop wireless networks in detail. We model the channel allocation problem as a static cooperative game, in which some players collaborate to achieve high date rate. We propose the min-max coalition-proof Nash equilibrium (MMCPNE) channel allocation scheme in the game, which aims to max the achieved date rates of communication links. We analyze the existence of MMCPNE and prove the necessary conditions for MMCPNE. Furthermore, we propose several algorithms that enable the selfish players to converge to MMCPNE. Simulation results show that MMCPNE outperforms CPNE and NE schemes in terms of achieved data rates of the multi-hop links due to cooperation gain.
