In the Age of Enlightenment the German philosopher Immanuel Kant encouraged people to use their own mind as the basis for reasoning instead of following dogmatic religious rules - Sapere aude! (dare to know!) - Today wireless communication networks are increasingly becoming aware of the conditions of its their component parts and surrounding environment. Cognition, a continuous process involving sensing, reasoning, understanding and reacting, can be applied to wireless networks in order to adapt the system to the highly dynamic wireless ecosystem. The ultimate goals are to enhance the efficiency in the use of radio resources as well as to improve both link and network performance. This book presents a detailed overview of a rapidly emerging topic in modern communications: cognitive wireless networks. The key aspects of cognitive and cooperative principles in wireless networks are discussed in this book. Furthermore, Cognitive Wireless Networks advocates the concept of breaking up the cellular communication architecture by introducing cooperative strategies among wireless devices. Cognitive wireless networking is the key to success in handling the upcoming dynamic network configurations and exploiting this cross-over to the fullest extent.
As wireless networks become pervasive, highly populated and increasingly complex, the essential preconditions for exploiting rich interactions among mobile devices are better fulfilled. Today, these trends are giving rise to new communications paradigms making use of cooperation and cognition as the main underlying principles. Cognition, together with its complementary principle cooperation, confer to the wireless networks some degree of consciousness or understanding about their own existence, such as internal structure, capabilities, relationships to the outside world, limitations, current use of radio resources and many more. Current wireless networks are aware of their surrounding environment to a very limited extent, but in future wireless networks this capability will be highly developed, as a consequence of exploiting jointly cooperative and cognitive principles. Especially for cooperative wireless networks, where the communication scenario is highly dynamic, the mobile devices need to adapt their capabilities in a flexible manner, taking advantage of cognitive principles. This book advocates the idea of breaking up the cellular communication architecture by introducing cooperative strategies among wireless devices through cognitive wireless networking. It details the cooperative and cognitive aspects for future wireless communication networks. Coverage includes social and biological inspired behavior applied to wireless networks, peer-to-peer networking, cooperative networks, and spectrum sensing and management.

This book advocates the idea of breaking up the cellular communication architecture by introducing cooperative strategies among wireless devices through cognitive wireless networking. It is divided into different parts dealing with cooperative and cognitive aspects for future wireless communication networks. Chapters written by world leading researchers in the field cover, among others, social and biological inspired behavior applied to wireless networks, peer-to-peer networking, cognitive radio or more generally cognitive networks, cooperative networks, game theory, spectrum sensing and management. In addition, tools and methodologies for modeling and analyzing cooperative and cognitive interactions in wireless networks are explained in detail to facilitate access to this advanced research topic.
