In the previous chapters, we have shown how to use OCF game approaches to solve complex resource allocation problems in modern cellular networks. Specifically, we consider the interference management problem in heterogenous networks and the cooperative spectrum sensing problem in cognitive radio. However, we point out that there may exists some technical challenges when applying OCF game approaches to other resource allocation problems.
