This book discusses in-depth the concept of distributed artificial intelligence (DAI) and its application to cognitive communications

In this book, the authors present an overview of cognitive communications, encompassing both cognitive radio and cognitive networks, and also other application areas such as cognitive acoustics. The book also explains the specific rationale for the integration of different forms of distributed artificial intelligence into cognitive communications, something which is often neglected in many forms of technical contributions available today. Furthermore, the chapters are divided into four disciplines: wireless communications, distributed artificial intelligence, regulatory policy and economics and implementation. The book contains contributions from leading experts (academia and industry) in the field.

Key Features:Covers the broader field of cognitive communications as a whole, addressing application to communication systems in general (e.g. cognitive acoustics and Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI)Illustrates how different DAI based techniques can be used to self-organise the radio spectrumExplores the regulatory, policy and economic issues of cognitive communications in the context of secondary spectrum accessDiscusses application and implementation of cognitive communications techniques in different application areas (e.g. Cognitive Femtocell Networks (CFN)Written by experts in the field from both academia and industry

Cognitive Communications will be an invaluable guide for research community (PhD students, researchers) in the areas of wireless communications, and development engineers involved in the design and development of mobile, portable and fixed wireless systems., wireless network design engineer. Undergraduate and postgraduate students on elective courses in electronic engineering or computer science, and the research and engineering community will also find this book of interest.  


About David Grace

I used to write under the name "David Alexander" but there were several other writers using that name and publishers and agents confused me with them, so I now use the pen name, "David Grace." My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind.I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled My Real Name Is Lisa as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled The Eyes Of The Blind as "True Faith." All available here at Smashwords.My favorite novels (of the ones that I wrote) are A Death In Beverly Hills, True Faith, Easy Target, Stolen Angel and Fever Dreams more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1.I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America.The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp."I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson.I am currently working on an action-adventure-thriller novel. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: True Faith; Stolen Angel; A Death In Beverly Hills, Doll's Eyes and Etched In Bone.
