Interference and traffic imbalance hinder improved system performance in heterogeneous ultra-dense networks. Network cooperation has become a promising paradigm with sophisticated techniques that can significantly enhance performance. In this article, a coalition game-theoretic framework is introduced to characterize cooperative behaviors, thus exploring these cooperative benefits and diversity gains. First, we introduce the basis of the coalition games. Then we survey its latest applications, in particular, interference mitigation and traffic offloading. Different from most current applications, we concentrate on cooperative incentive mechanism design since node cooperation always means resource consumption and other costs. Moreover, for the incentive mechanism, cooperative spectrum leasing is introduced. To mitigate interference and balance traffic, we propose two schemes under the presented framework: IASL and TOSL. Simulation results show the improved performance of the cooperative gains using the proposed IASL and TOSL schemes.
