Abstract [en]

We consider the problem of coordinating two competingmultiple-antenna wireless systems (operators) that operatein the same spectral band. We formulate a rate region whichis achievable by scalar coding followed by power allocationand beamforming. We show that all interesting points on thePareto boundary correspond to transmit strategies where bothsystems use the maximum available power. We then argue thatthere is a fundamental need for base station cooperation whenperforming spectrum sharing with multiple transmit antennas.More precisely, we show that if the systems do not cooperate,there is a unique Nash equilibrium which is inefficient in the sensethat the achievable rate is bounded by a constant, regardless ofthe available transmit power. An extension of this result to thecase where the receivers use successive interference cancellation(SIC) is also provided.Next we model the problem of agreeing on beamformingvectors as a non-transferable utility (NTU) cooperative gametheoreticproblem, with the two operators as players. Specificallywe compute numerically the Nash bargaining solution, which isa likely resolution of the resource conflict assuming that theplayers are rational. Numerical experiments indicate that selfishbut cooperating operators may achieve a performance which isclose to the maximum-sum-rate bound.
