Abstract: Using a new model of spectrum consumption that is being adopted by the IEEE DySPAN-SC P1900.5.2 group, we introduce an algorithm for determining aggregate system compatibility in spectrum management---that is, calculating if a configuration of a dynamically changing system of transmitters and receivers will result in any device experiencing an undesirable level of interference. We show how this problem amounts to solving a series of nonlinear programs consisting of minimizing a non-convex, non-concave function over a non-convex region. We exploit the geometry of these NLPs to develop global optimization algorithms and prove that global optimal solutions can be found with less searching when all devices are omnidirectional.
