ABSTRACT In this paper, the symbol error rate (SER) performance of a relay-based amplify-and-forward (AF) system is analyzed over fading channels . The relay power-gain is optimized with the objective of maximizing the received signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) at the destination, given that the fading statistics of the links are known at the relay node. The Gaussian finite mixture is utilized to mathematically formulate, in a simple and unified way, the statistics of the received SNR at optimal relay power-gain. These statistics include the probability density function (pdf) and the moment generating function (MGF). Using this technique, the SER for coherent and differentially coherent modulations are derived. Monte Carlo simulation results are presented to validate the derived expressions.

    ABSTRACT: In a distributed spatial diversity wireless system, not all antennas are located at one station as in classical transmit diversity systems, but are dispersed at different, possibly mobile, stations in the network. Transmit diversity is created when the selected stations assist a sender by relaying its information signal to the destination. In this letter, we present an exact average symbol error rate analysis for the distributed spatial diversity wireless system with K amplifying relays in a Rayleigh-fading environment. The average symbol error rate formula allows us to clearly illustrate the advantage that the distributed diversity system has in overcoming the severe penalty in signal-to-noise ratio caused by Rayleigh fading. Using simple bounds on the probability of error, we show that the cooperative network presented in this letter achieves full diversity order.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider the analysis of a cooperative relay-based amplify-and-forward system in terms of average and outage capacity over fading channels. We first optimize the relay gain with the objective of maximizing the received signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) at the destination, given that the fading statistics of the links in the cooperative system are known at the relay node. The Gaussian finite mixture with an expectation maximization algorithm is utilized to approximate the fading pdf expression in a simple and unified closed-form for the pdfs of Rayleigh, Nakagami-m, and Weibull fading channels. Using this technique, the average capacity and the outage capacity are derived. Monte Carlo simulation results are presented to validate the derived expressions.

    ABSTRACT: The end-to-end performance of cooperative relay- based wireless communication system with nonregenerative relay over generalized Gaussian-Finite-Mixture fading channels is presented. The received signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) is maximized by optimizing the relay gain given that the fading statistics of the links in a cooperative system are known by the relay. The statistics of the received SNR at optimum gain are derived in closed forms. More specifically the probability density function (pdf), the cumulative distribution function (CDF), the moment generating function (MGF), and the amount of fading (AoF) for noise-limited cooperative relay-based system are derived. In this paper, Finite Mixture (FM) with Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm is utilized to derive simple approximate expression for the pdfs of Rayleigh, Nakagami-m and Weibull fading channels. Numerical results using Monte Carlo simulation are used to validate the derived closed-form expressions. The resultant expressions of the statistics of the received SNR simplify the analysis of the end-to-end performance of cooperative relay-based wireless communication system.
