The authors presented low-complexity schemes for jointly deciding subcarrier assignment, power allocation and relay assignment (JSPARA) for multiuser non-regenerative relaying in a multigroup, multicast cognitive radio system (MMCRS). The authors considered two different optimisation problems. In one optimisation problem, the authors studied the problem of maximising the sum-rate of an MMCRS. In another optimisation problem, the authors considered the problem of maximising the rate of the worst multicast group of users. And also the authors proposed low-complexity iterative algorithms for JSPARA. The proposed algorithms have low-computational complexity, and their effectiveness is verified through simulation results.
