Dynamic Spectrum Access in Cognitive Radio Networks

Since the 1930s, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has controlled the radio frequency energy spectrum. They license segments to particular users in particular geographic areas. A few, small, unlicensed bands were left open for anyone to use as long as they followed certain power regulations…
