Modelling resource allocation problems in the form of non-cooperative pricing games takes into account the difference between how much a given performance metric is valued and how much is paid for it. For the convergence of the sum of all users' payoff to a global maximum, the determination of the utility function is essential. Although supermodularity conditions have been previously defined and determined to obtain suitable utility functions, different utilities have significantly varying

Users could misbehave by broadcasting high price coefficients to force other users to transmit at a lower power. This paper proposes an adaptation of the Asynchronous Distributed Pricing Algorithm with a Deviation Detection Block that re-aligns the deviated system back into the algorithm.
