Cognitive Radio Optimization

By Arman Zaribafiyan & Jaspreet Oberoi

This research proposes a new approach for tackling cognitive radio asset allocation optimization problems. The cognitive radio optimization problem is generally an NP-hard mixed-integer programming problem due to its convoluted constraints. In contrast to conventional methods of using meta-heuristics and evolutionary algorithms, we implement non-linear constraints as polynomial penalty functions of binary variables and build a new objective function in a quadratic unconstrained binary optimization (QUBO) format.
