Detecting the unused spectrum and sharing it without harmful interference with other users is an important requirement of the Cognitive Radio network to sense spectrum holes. This paper focused on the spectrum sensing models and some kinds of spectrum sensing algorithms and their improved algorithms. And attention is concentrated on the performance compare of the different algorithms.
