A Game Theoretic Approach to Capacity Sharing in CDMA Radio Networks


A. Feiten, R. Mathar,


        A fundamental problem in code division multiple access (CDMA) systems is the study of the capacity region and its optimal utilization by a community of users. In this paper, we use cooperative game theory to analyze the capacity region. We introduce utility functions and formulate a Nash bargaining problem in order to find an optimal element. The Nash bargaining solution is uniquely defined by four axioms. In this way, efficiency and fairness is obtained. It is shown that this global approach can be decentralized while the solution remains the same, which is important for practical application.
