We consider a system with multiple Femtocells (FCs) operating in a Macrocell. The transmissions in one Femtocell interfere with its neighboring Femtocells. Each Femtocell has multiple users, each requiring a minimum transmission rate. There is also peak transmit power constraint in each channel to control interference to the BS and the users in the Macrocell. We formulate the problem of channel allocation and power control in each Femtocell as a noncooperative Game. We develop efficient decentralized algorithms to obtain a Nash equilibrium (NE) that satisfies the Quality of Service (QoS) of each user, in an efficient way. We also obtain efficient decentralized algorithms to obtain fair NE when it may not be feasible to satisfy the QoS of all the users in FCs. Finally, we extend our algorithms to the case where there may be voice and data users in the system. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
