Network coding (NC) is a technique of transmitting data in an encoded and a decoded form. It is applied on the nodes of a network. It increases the throughput by sending more information in less packet transmission and stabilizes the network. In cognitive radio network (CRN), one of the main advantages of NC is that the transmission time of secondary users (SUs) is reduced [1]. NC is an emerging technique used in many types of networks. It makes the network robust to the packet loss using transmission control protocol. In order to amplify the throughput and robustness in CRNs, NC is a preeminent selection.
