TLDR
In this paper, focusing on multihop decode-and- forward cooperative networks, a hop-by-hop routing strategy is designed to optimize the end-to-end outage performance when only knowledge about the mean channel state information (CSI) is available, a novel optimization metric is devised to select the best relay on a per-hop basis.
