We develop a stochastic model to characterize the effects of correlated shadow fading on a linear cooperative multi-hop wireless network. A one-dimensional network of equally-spaced nodes is considered, where a group of nodes transmits cooperatively to another group of nodes under large-scale fading effects. The transmission from one level to another is(More)
We consider a cooperative multi-hop line network, where a group of nodes cooperatively transmits the same message to another group of nodes, and model the transmission from one group to another as a discrete-time quasi-stationary Markov process. We derive the transition probability matrix of the Markov chain by considering the wireless channel exhibiting(More)
—In order to improve the uplink performance of future cellular networks, the idea to decouple the downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) association has recently been shown to provide significant gain in terms of both coverage and rate performance. However, all the work is limited to SISO network. Therefore, to study the gain provided by the DL and UL decoupling in(More)
