SUMMARY Simple half-duplex repetition-based relaying protocols can achieve spatial diversity at the expense of additional relaying signals in the time domain. In this paper, a linear unitary precoder based on a singular vector for cooperative systems with the amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying protocol is proposed in order to improve spectral efficiency.

—QR decomposition (QRD) based relay protocols can achieve both the distributed array gain and the intra-node array gain in multi-relay systems. Because the QRD is not unique if column permutation is utilized, the traditional QRD based relay protocol can be further improved. Row permutation of the forward channel and column permutation of the backward(More)
