In cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase systems robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. In cooperative communication systems which use hierarchical modulation, error propagation is the most important problem that prevents achieving full diversity gain. Thresholds that depend on the signal to noise ratio (SNR) value between the source and the relay can be used to mitigate error propagation. If the instantaneous SNR between the source and the relay is lower than the first threshold, the relay does not transmit. If the SNR is between the first and the second thresholds, the relay demodulates and forwards only the primary bits. If the SNR is higher than the second threshold, the relay demodulates and forwards both the primary and the secondary bits. Mitigating error propagation and achieving full diversity for both primary (high priority) and secondary (low priority) bits depend on setting the thresholds at the relay properly. In this work, the first and the second threshold values are determined so that full diversity gains are attained for both primary and secondary bits. Analytical and simulation results are provided to verify the analysis.

Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
Cooperative relaying schemes for narrow-band frequency hopping wireless ad hoc networks
Yenihayat, Güven; Onat, Furuzan Atay; Kolaǧasioǧlu, Ertuǧrul; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2011-08-29)
Cooperative relaying is a promising technique for improving the performance of weak communication links in wireless networks by exploiting spatial diversity induced by relay transmissions. This paper considers cooperative relaying schemes for a narrow- band frequency hopping system. A novel hybrid relaying scheme called opportunistic hybrid relaying, which is specifically designed for this system, is presented. Unlike most relaying schemes in the literature, opportunistic hybrid relaying uses bandwidth effi...
Differential network coding in wireless networks Telsiz aǧlarda farksal aǧ kodlamasi
Özdemir, Özgür; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2009-10-29)
In this paper a three-terminal communication scenario where two users exchange information by employing differential binary modulation and network coding via a relay is considered. The transmission is divided into three slots in time where the first and second slots are allocated to the transmission of differential encoded data of the users. After demodulation, the relay broadcasts the bit-wise XOR-ed and differential encoded packet to the users in the third slot. The optimum detector and a simplified decis...
Performance Comparisons of Relaying Schemes in Bi-directional Demodulate-and-Forward Channels
ÖZDEMİR, ÖZGÜR; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Aktas, Emre (2012-04-04)
Bi-directional relaying (BDR) in which two users wish to exchange independent information in presence of a relay is one of the fundamental wireless network coding applications that attracted intense interests recently. In this paper, maximum likelihood (ML), cooperative maximal ratio combining (CMRC) and soft information relaying (SIR) schemes proposed to combat error propagation in wireless relay systems are applied to the BDR scenario with demodulate-and-forward protocol, which decreases system complexity...
Adaptive modulation for completion time minimization in wireless broadcast networks
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Genc, Yasin (2017-01-01)
In this work we study the effect of hierarchical modulation on completion time minimization in wireless broadcast channels. Time needed to transmit all bits intended for a particular user is defined as its completion time. In this work we investigate minimizing the maximum completion time over all users in a broadcast channel using hierarchical modulation. We compare time division, opportunistic scheduling, and three different adaptive modulation schemes: rate adaptive hierarchical modulation assisted trans...
