Overview

The spectrum bands of the multiple base stations comprise the sets of orthogonal wireless channels and spectrum usage scenarios the device to device pairs transmit over the dedicated frequency bands and the device to device pairs operate on the shared cellular channels. The goal of each device pair is to jointly select the wireless channel and power level to maximize its reward, defined as the difference between the achieved throughput and the cost of power consumption, constrained by its minimum tolerable signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio requirements. We formulate this problem as a stochastic non-cooperative game with multiple players where each player becomes a learning agent whose task is to learn its best strategy and develop a fully autonomous multi-agent Q-learning algorithm converging to a mixed-strategy Nash equilibrium. The learning algorithm shows relatively fast convergence and near-optimal performance after a small number of iterations.
