Written by leading experts in the field, Game Theory and Learning for Wireless Networks Covers how theory can be used to solve prevalent problems in wireless networks such as power control, resource allocation or medium access control. With the emphasis now on promoting `green' solutions in the wireless field where power consumption is minimized, there is an added focus on developing network solutions that maximizes the use of the spectrum available.

With the growth of distributed wireless networks such as Wi-Fi and the Internet; the push to develop ad hoc and cognitive networks has led to a considerable interest in applying game theory to wireless communication systems. Game Theory and Learning for Wireless Networks is the first comprehensive resource of its kind, and is ideal for wireless communications R&D engineers and graduate students.

About Samson Lasaulce

Samson received his BSc and Agregation degree in Applied Physics from Ecole Normale Superieure (Cachan) and his MSc and PhD in Signal Processing from Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications (Paris). Professional experience. He has been working with Motorola Labs for three years (1999, 2000, 2001) and with France Telecom R&D for two years (2002, 2003). Since 2004, he has joined the CNRS and Supelec. Since 2004, he is also Charge d'Enseignement at Ecole Polytechnique. His broad interests lie in the areas of communications, signal processing and information theory with a special emphasis on game theory for wireless communications. Samson Lasaulce is the recipient of the 2007 ACM/ICST International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools (VALUETOOLS) and 2009 International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications (CROWNCOM) best student paper awards. Elena Veronica Belmega, who is a PhD student under my supervision, was awarded with the 2009 Academy of Sciences - L'Oreal - Unesco award for young women in sciences in France.
