Non-Cooperative Behavior in Wireless Networks

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

May 2007

Relaxing spectrum licensing:

- small network operators in unlicensed bands
- inexpensive access points
- flexible deployment

- community and ad hoc networks
- no authority
- peer-to-peer network operation

- cognitive radio
- restricted operation in any frequency band
- no interference with licensed (primary) users
- adaptive behavior

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

- more complexity at the network edges
- decentralization
- ease of programming for wireless devices
- rational users

- more adaptive wireless devices
- potential selfish behaviorof devices

- the CA game in strategic form

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

Best response: Best strategy of player i given the strategies of others.

Nash equilibrium: No player has an incentive to unilaterally deviate.

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

Pareto-optimality: The strategy profile spois Pareto-optimal if:

with strict inequality for at least one player i

Price of anarchy: The ratio between the total payoff of players playing a socially-optimal (max. Pareto-optimal) strategy and a worst Nash equilibrium.

- multi-radio devices
- set of available channels

How to assign radios to available channels?

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

- C – set of orthogonal channels (|C| = C)
- N – set of communicating pairs of devices (|N| = N)
- sender controls the communication (sender and receiver are synchronized)
- single collision domain if they use the same channel
- devices have multiple radios
- k radios at each device, k ≤ C

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

number of radios by sender i

on channel x

- N communicating pairs of devices
- C orthogonal channels
- k radios at each device

→

Intuition:

example:

Use multiple radios on one channel ?

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

- channels with the same properties
- τt(kx)– total throughput on any channel x
- τ(kx) – throughput per radio

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

- selfish users (communicating pairs)
- non-cooperative game GMRCA
- players→ senders
- strategy → channel allocation
- payoff → total throughput

- strategy:
- strategy matrix:

Theorem: In GMRCA , the price of anarchy is:

Corollary: If τt(kx) is constant (i.e., ideal TDMA), then any Nash equilibrium channel allocation is Pareto-optimal in GMRCA.

Márk Félegyházi (EPFL)

- In theory, if the total throughput function τt(kx) is constant POA = 1
- In practice, there are collisions, but τt(kx) decreases slowly with kx (due to the RTS/CTS method)
