      The goal Introduce students to the principles of cognitive radio, a new way of thinking and research in the radio communications. In the course, students will learn about the possibilities of better access and more efficient use of spectrum, the use of cognition in radio as well as the specific of coexistence between licensed and cognitive users - cognitive radio networks.
      The outcome At the end of the course students will be able to: - Learn a new way of thinking and research in the field of radio communication - cognitive radio - Learn techniques to better access and use resources more effectively - Understand the specific of coexistence between licensed and cognitive users - cognitive radio networks - Review the future direction of development of cognitive radio networks
      Contents of lectures Techniques of design, analysis and optimization of dynamic spectrum access and dynamic spectrum management (techniques of signal processing, optimization, game theory, machine learning algorithms) - Models, architectures and control of dynamic spectrum access, centralized and distributed approach to spectrum - Techniques to determine the location and security aspect in cognitive radio networks
