Whitepaper: A Non-Cooperative Power Control Game for Multi-Carrier CDMA Systems

by Princeton UniversityJan 01, 2008

A game-theoretic model for studying power control in multi-carrier CDMA systems is proposed. This paper published by IntelliClear describes the utility function that measures the number of reliable bits transmitted over all the carriers per joule of energy consumed and is particularly suitable for networks where energy efficiency is important. It is shown that, for all linear receivers including the matched filter, decorrelating and minimum mean square error (MMSE) detectors, a user’s utility is maximized when the user transmits only on its ""Best"" carrier.
