Spectrum sharing with quality of service (QoS) requirement and power constraint on cognitive users is studied. The objective is to maximize the system throughput. This problem is modeled as a mixed integer nonlinear programming problem and then transformed to a continuous nonlinear programming problem through eliminating integer variables. We propose the joint power control and spectrum allocation algorithm based on particle swarm optimization to obtain the global optimal solution. Simulation results show that the proposed method can achieve higher system throughput and spectrum utilization under the constraints of transmit power and QoS requirement.
