Transmission strategies and resource allocation for fading broadcast relay channels

Isikman, Arif Onder
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda
In this paper the broadcast relay channel, where the source communicates with multiple destinations with the help of a single relay is studied. Five different transmission protocols, direct transmission, multihop (MH), multihop with link combination (MHLC), path selection (PS) and path selection with link combination (PSLC) are investigated. In MH and MHLC, the relay decodes the source message and assists both destinations. In PS and PSLC, the relay can perform partial decoding and has the option to help only one of the destinations. Under long-term power constraint, power allocation for delay-limited transmission is performed to minimize common outage probability and individual outage probability region. For comparison, lower bounds on both common and individual outage probabilities are found. Numerical results suggest that path selection significantly lowers outage probabilities, while enforcing the relay to help both destinations simultaneously is limiting the system performance.

Minimum Common Outage Probability for the Broadcast Relay Channel
Isikman, Arif Onder; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2011-01-01)
In this paper the broadcast relay channel (BRC) is studied. In the BRC model, the source communicates with two destinations with the help of a single relay. The minimum common outage probability for four different transmission protocols, direct transmission (DT), multihop (MH), path selection (PS) and link combination with path selection (LCPS) is investigated under long-term power constraint for constant rate transmission. In addition, the epsilon-outage rate region for a fixed common outage probability is...
Relay-Assisted Beamforming for Multicast Systems with Energy Harvesting Capability
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this paper, multi-group multicasting scenario is considered where single antenna sources transmit their own information to different groups of users with the help of single antenna relays. Users have energy harvesting capability, i.e., a part of the received signal is used for information decoding while the rest is used for energy harvesting. Beamforming is performed by the relays which use amplify-and-forward protocol. The design of complex relay coefficients and power splitting ratios for the users is ...
Capacity of Zero-Outage Scheme Under Imprecise Channel State Information
Candan, Çağatay (2013-01-01)
The capacity of zero-outage scheme with imprecise channel state information at the transmitter side (CSIT) for frequency flat, single-input multiple-output (SIMO) channels is examined. It is shown that when CSIT is not precise, the receiver signal-to-noise-ratio fluctuates and the scheme suffers from communication outages. Exact analytical expressions characterizing the outage capacity, the additional power required to compensate the effect of noisy CSIT are given and the impact of noisy CSIT on the ergodic...
Cooperative diversity techniques for wireless networks
Bilgin, Ali; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2006-04-19)
Relay networks have usually been investigated within a single source (S), relay (R), and destination (D) group in the literature. In this work, cooperative diversity techniques will be investigated for relay networks having multiple S, R and D's. Simulations results for linear and uniform S, R and D localizations will be presented.

In this paper, broadcast beamforming with relay selection is considered in wireless relay networks where there is no direct link between the source and the receivers. A source node transmits common information to many users employing multiple relays which use amplify-and-forward relay protocol. The channel state information is assumed to be available at a single relay to compute the relay weights and distribute them. Discrete relay weights are used due to several advantages including decreased overhead for ...
