              Originally invented to explain complicated economic behaviors, game theory is poised to become a fundamental technique in the field of wireless communications and networks. This book explains how game theory can be used to address a wide range of issues in wireless communications... and examines how it can be employed in infrastructure-based wireless networks and multihop networks to reduce power consumption, improve system capacity, decrease packet loss, and enhance network resilience. The authors demonstrate how to effectively apply the game theoretic model to handle issues of resource allocation, congestion control, attack, routing, energy management, packet forwarding, and MAC.

              The goal of Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) is to provide seamless access to GSM and GPRS mobile service networks via unlicensed spectrum technologies, including Bluetooth, WiMAX, and Wi-Fi. Expanding on the level of knowledge in this growing field, Unlicensed Mobile Access Techno...logy: Protocols, Architectures, Security, Standards, and Applications presents the first complete cross-referenced resource exploring UMA and UMA-relevant technologies. When operating successfully, the technology supporting dual-mode enabled mobile terminals allows subscribers to roam freely and seamlessly between cellular networks. However, various technical challenges still occasionally impede clear communication. This book explores the complex issue of mobility management and emphasizes the need for intelligently designed vertical and horizontal handoff algorithms that will improve adaptability in heterogeneous wireless environments. In addition, it reviews the various strategies to guarantee Quality-of-Service (QoS) during movement and handoff. The first chapters introduce the basic technology of these systems and discuss QoS, resource management, mobility management, and security issues in UMA technology. The middle section concentrates on protocols and security challenges in UMA-related technologies, which include Bluetooth, WirelessPAN, Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) and WiMAX (IEEE 802.16). The final chapters present standard specifications and various applications. Comprised of contributions from world-wide experts, this book is a complete reference, offering guidance on all aspects of the technical and practical issues in UMA technology.
