In a cooperative communication system, each wireless user is assumed to transmit data as well as act as a cooperative agent for another user (Fig. 1). Cooperation leads to interesting trade-offs in code rates and transmit power. In the case of power, one may argue on one hand that more power is needed because each user, when in cooperative mode, is transmitting for both users. On the other hand, the baseline Fig. 2 Cooperative Communication Model 25 transmit power for both users will be reduced because of diversity.

Compared with the ‘or’ rule the higher spectrum efficiency can be achieved in the ‘and’ rule, while the probability of miss detection also increased at the same time. The ‘or’ rule gives better performance than other rules in the point of protecting the PU. In the actual occasions of spectrum sharing, the SU access the idle spectrum opportunistically. The PU may return to the occupied spectrum at any time, so we must make sure that the PU is protected sufficiently. Therefore, in the research of CSS, when the decision fusion is considered, the FC often combine the information by the ‘or’ rule.
