Game Theory in Wireless Networks: A Tutorial

The behavior of a given wireless station may affect the communication capabilities of a neighboring one, notably because the radio communication channel is usually shared in wireless networks. In this tutorial, we carefully explain how situations of this kind can be modelled by making use of game theory. By leveraging on four simple running examples, we introduce the most fundamental concepts of non-cooperative game theory. This approach should help students and scholars to quickly master this fascinating analytical tool without having to read the existing lengthy, economics-oriented books; it should also assist them in modelling the problems of their own.
