This paper studies the information-theoretic limits of a secondary or cognitive radio (CR) network under spectrum sharing with an existing primary radio network. In particular, the fading cognitive multiple-access channel (C-MAC) is first studied, where multiple secondary users transmit to the secondary base station (BS) under both individual transmit-power constraints and a set of interference-power constraints each applied at one of the primary receivers. This paper considers the long-term (LT) or the short-term (ST) transmit-power constraint over the fading states at each secondary transmitter, combined with the LT or ST interference-power constraint at each primary receiver. In each case, the optimal power allocation scheme is derived for the secondary users to achieve the ergodic sum capacity of the fading C-MAC, as well as the conditions for the optimality of the dynamic time-division multiple-access (D-TDMA) scheme in the secondary network. The fading cognitive broadcast channel (C-BC) that models the downlink transmission in the secondary network is then studied under the LT/ST transmit-power constraint at the secondary BS jointly with the LT/ST interference-power constraint at each of the primary receivers. It is shown that D-TDMA is indeed optimal for achieving the ergodic sum capacity of the fading C-BC for all combinations of transmit-power and interference-power constraints.
