      ESPB 9.0 Status elective
      The goal The objective of the course is to introduce students to principles of cognitive radio, new way of thinking and research in the field of radio communications. Within the course students will learn about the possibilities of better access and more efficient use of the spectrum, as well as the specificity of coexistence of licensed and cognitive users - cognitive radio network.
      The outcome At the end of the course students will be able to: - understand a new way of thinking and research in the field of radio communications - cognitive radio - understand techniques for better access and more efficient use of radio resource - consider the specificity of licensed and cognitive users coexistence - cognitive radio networks
      Contents of lectures - Design, analysis and optimization techniques for dynamic spectrum management (signal processing techniques, optimization, game theory, e-learning algorithms) - Models, architectures and dynamic spectrum access control, centralized and distributed spectrum access - Location detection techniques and aspects of security in cognitive radio networks
      Contents of exercises Independent practical research
