In the commons model for the spectrum sharing, cognitive users can access the spectrum as long as the target performance in the legitimate primary system is not violated. In this paper, we consider a downlink primary multiple-input-single-output (MISO) system which operates under a controlled interference from the downlink MISO cognitive radio, also called secondary system. We derive exact expressions for outage probability of the primary user under Rayleigh fading, when the primary system is exposed to interference from a secondary base station. Moreover, in high-SNR scenario, a closed-form asymptotic formula for the outage probability is derived, which shows that the primary receiver achieves full spatial diversity under given interference from the secondary user. Next, the optimum transmit power in the secondary system is investigated for maximizing the ergodic capacity when there is an outage constraint at the primary system, and a simple solution is proposed. Finally, the analytical results are confirmed by simulations, in which we analyze the impact of different parameters, such as the number of antennas and the amount of the interference on the system performance; these could be used as system design guidelines.
