Abstract


Sensors are regarded as significant components of electronic devices. In most applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), important and critical information must be delivered to the sink in a multi-hop and energy-efficient manner. Inasmuch as the energy of sensor nodes is limited, prolonging network lifetime in WSNs is considered to be a critical issue. In order to extend the network lifetime, researchers should consider energy consumption in routing protocols of WSNs. A wide spectrum of issues can be efficiently addressed in recent efforts in applying Game theory in wireless communications and networking. It is envisioned that game theory will be a fundamental technique in the field of wireless communications and networks. Game theory was originally invented to explain complicated economic behavior. With its effectiveness in studying complex dynamics among players, game theory has been widely applied in politics, philosophy, military,  Sociology, telecommunications and logistics. The game theoretic model is able to address efficiently resource allocation, congestion control, attack, routing, energy management, packet forwarding, and medium access control (MAC). This paper systematically introduces and explains the applications of game theory in wireless communications and networking. It provides a comprehensive technical guide covering introductory concepts, fundamental techniques, recent advances, and open issues.
