In this letter, we propose a Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP) based Distributed Adaptive Opportunistic Spectrum Access (DA-OSA) Strategy for Cognitive Ad Hoc Networks (CAHNs). In each slot, the source and destination choose a set of channels to sense and then decide the transmission channels based on the sensing results. In order to maximize the throughput for each link, we use the theories of sequential decision and optimal stopping to determine the optimal sensing channel set. Moreover, we also establish the myopic policy and exploit the monotonicity of the reward function that we use, which can be used to reduce the complexity of the sequential decision.
