AbstractWith the development of artificial intelligence, the large-scale access of intelligence equipment with complex heterogeneity will bring unpredictable spectrum limitation and complex interferences to traditional cellular networks. This situation can be alleviated by device-to-device (D2D) technique which improves spectrum efficiency by reusing cellular resources. In this paper, a resource allocation framework comprising channel allocation and power control based on Stackelberg game is

First, base station matches the channel to D2D pairs on the basis of potential throughput gain. Second, interferences from D2D pairs to cellular users are converted into a penalty for D2D pairs through the interlayer price, and the optimization problem of system throughput is decoupled into multiple subproblems those can be solved in distributed and iterative manner in each D2D pair. Simulation results show that two proposed distributed algorithms of channel allocation and power control on interference coordination perform well in convergence and overall system throughput.
