This paper introduces the self-organizing dynamic spectrum management (SO-DSM) for ad hoc cognitive radio (CR) networks. In this scheme, CR units try to exploit the primary networks' unused bands by establishing links with neighbouring CRs using those bands. Inspired by human brain, the CRs extract and memorize the activity patterns of the primary network and other CRs and create temporal channel assignments on sub-bands with no recent primary user activities using a self-organizing maps (SOM) technique. The proposed scheme is decentralized and employs a simple learning rule with low complexity and minimal memory requirements. The simulation results show that SO-DSM significantly decreases the probability of collision with primary users and also probability of CR link interruption.
