Throughput-Efficient Dynamic Coalition Formation in Distributed Cognitive Radio Networks
We formulate the problem of distributed throughput-efficient sensing in cognitive radio (CR) networks as a dynamic coalition formation game based on a Markovian model. The propose...

Cooperative Games with Overlapping Coalitions
In the usual models of cooperative game theory, the outcome of a coalition formation process is either the grand coalition or a coalition structure that consists of disjoint coali...
