In this paper we address the problem of Weighted Sum Rate (WSR) maximization for a K-user Multiple-Input Single-Output (MISO) cognitive Interference Channel (IFC) with linear transmit beamforming (BF) vectors in an underlay cognitive radio setting. We consider a set of L single-antenna Primary receivers to which the cognitive system can causes a limited amount of interference. We thus propose an iterative algorithm to determine the BF vectors for the secondary transmission.

The optimization of the Lagrange multipliers involved in the optimization problem is based on the subgradient method. The expression of the BF vector can be interpreted as dual Uplink (UL) MMSE receiver that takes into account the interference caused by a fictitious link between the primary user and secondary base station. Finally Deterministic Annealing is applied to make the convergence of the algorithm easier.
