AbstractThere have recently been research efforts that leverage compressive sampling to enable wideband spectrum sensing recovery at sub-Nyquist rates. These efforts consider homogenous wideband spectrum, where all bands are assumed to have similar primary user traffic characteristics. In practice, however, wideband spectrum is not homogeneous, in that different bands could present different occupancy patterns. In fact, applications of similar types are often assigned spectrum bands within the same block, dictating that wideband spectrum is indeed heterogeneous. In this paper, we consider heterogeneous wideband spectrum and exploit its inherent block-like structure to design efficient compressive spectrum sensing techniques that are well suited for heterogeneous wideband spectrum. We propose a weighted ?(1) -minimization sensing information recovery algorithm that achieves more stable recovery than that achieved by existing approaches, while accounting for the variations of spectrum occupancy across both the time and frequency dimensions. In addition, we show that our proposed algorithm requires a smaller number of sensing measurements when compared to the state-of-the-art approaches.
