Abstract: Decentralized networks are adhoc based networks. Flexibility and scalability are achieved in decentralized networks. Key parameters like limitation of spectrum resources, lack of central authority and coupling among the users needs to be considered for designing efficient resource allocation strategies for decentralized networks. The problem of channel selection and power control in a decentralized network consisting of multiple users is considered. User interaction in the network is used to formulate a Non cooperative Transmission Control Game (NTCG). A Utility based Transmission Control (UTC) algorithm is utilized to obtain a globally optimal solution. UTC can be adopted to efficiently allocate resources in general cases as the algorithm does not require the converging point to be Nash Equilibrium (NE) point of the formulated game.
