A scenario consisting of two transmitter-receiver pairs coexisting in the same area and communicating using the same portion of the spectrum is considered. Decentralized coding strategies are employed at the transmitter side and no cooperation is assumed between the two systems. We investigate the structure of Nash equilibria corresponding to simultaneous water-filling solutions and propose a scheme that improves overall performance of systems with weak mutual interference. The resulting scheme provides a spectrum sharing rule in the form of a modified utility function. The conditions for optimality are presented and a numerical example illustrates the performance compared to a scheme employing the link rate as utility function.
