This letter studies the price-based power control algorithm for the spectrum sharing cognitive radio networks. The primary user (PU) profits from the secondary users (SUs) by pricing the interference power made by them. The SUs cooperate with each other to maximize their sum revenue with the signal-to-interference plus noise ratio (SINR) balancing condition. The interaction between the PU and the SUs is modeled as a Stackelberg game. Closed-form expressions of the optimal price for the PU and power allocation for the SUs are given. Simulation results show the proposed algorithm improves the revenue of both the PU and fairness of the SUs compared with the uniform pricing algorithm.
