Abstract

We analyze the performance of cooperative communication systems with opportunistic decode-and-forward for relaying and selection combining receiver at the destination. We derive an exact closed-form expression for the outage of the system over dissimilar Nakagami fading channels. Also, we study its asymptotic outage performance, based on which the optimum power allocations for the source and the relays are determined. Finally, we verify the theoretical results by simulations.
