appears in the current issue (Nov. 2013) of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. The manuscript proposes integration between collaborative spectrum sensing and user-cooperation under MIMO decision fusion framework. The presented analysis is performed with respect to Maximum Ratio Combining fusion rule.
