Device-to-device (D2D) communication is developed as a new paradigm to enhance network performance according to LTE and WiMAX advanced standards. The D2D communication may have dedicated spectrum (overlay) or shared spectrum (underlay). However, the allocated dedicated spectrum may not be effectively used in the overlay mode, while interference between the D2D users and cellular users cause impairments in the underlay mode. Can the resource allocation of a D2D system be optimized using the cognitive approach where the D2D users opportunistically access the underutilized radio spectrum? That is the focus of this paper. In this paper, the transmission rate of the D2D users is optimized while simultaneously satisfying five sets of constraints related to power, interference, and data rate, modeling D2D users as cognitive secondary users. Furthermore, a two-stage approach is considered to allocate the radio resources efficiently. A new adaptive subcarrier allocation scheme is designed first, and then, a novel power allocation scheme is developed utilizing geometric water-filling approach that provides optimal solution with low computation complexity for this nonlinear problem. Numerical results show that the proposed approach achieved significant performance enhancement than the existing schemes.
