Abstract

In this paper, we apply evolutionary games to non-cooperative power control in wireless networks. Specifically, we focus our study in a power control in W-CDMA and WIMAX wireless systems. We study competitive power control within a large population of mobiles that interfere with each other through many local interactions. Each local interaction involves a random number of mobiles. An utility function is introduced as the difference between a utility function based on SIR of the mobile and pricing. The games are not necessarily reciprocal as the set of mobiles causing interference to a given mobile may differ from the set of those suffering from its interference. We show how the evolution dynamics and the equilibrium behavior (called Evolutionary Stable Strategy - ESS) are influenced by the characteristics of the wireless channel and pricing characteristics.
