In the half-duplex single relay selection network, comprised of a source, M half-duplex relays, and a destination, only one relay is active at any given time, i.e., only one relay receives or transmits, and the other relays are inactive, i.e., they do not receive nor transmit. The capacity of this network, when all links are affected by independent slow(More)
In this paper, the problem of cooperative spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks based on linear combination of local observations is considered. In particular, log-normal shadow-fading is considered in both sensing and reporting channels. To reduce the effects of imperfect channel conditions, a clustering algorithm is suggested in which final(More)
In this paper, we investigate the capacity of the Gaussian two-hop full-duplex (FD) relay channel with residual self-interference. This channel is comprised of a source, an FD relay, and a destination, where a direct source-destination link does not exist and the FD relay is impaired by residual self-interference. We adopt the worst-case linear(More)
In molecular communication (MC) systems, the expected number of molecules observed at the receiver over time after the instantaneous release of molecules by the transmitter is referred to as the channel impulse response (CIR). Knowledge of the CIR is needed for the design of detection and equalization schemes. In this paper, we present a training-based CIR(More)
Most of the available works on molecular communication (MC) assume that the channel state information (CSI) is perfectly known at the receiver for data detection. In contrast, in this paper, we study non-coherent multiple-symbol detection schemes which do not require knowledge of the CSI. In particular, we derive the optimal maximum likelihood (ML)(More)
In this paper, we consider the problem of sum throughput maximization for bidirectional relay networks with block fading. Thereby, user 1 and user 2 exchange information only via a relay node, i.e., a direct link between both users is not present. We assume that channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT) is not available and/or only one coding and(More)
The bidirectional relay channel, in which two users communicate with each other through a relay node, is a simple but fundamental and practical network architecture. In this paper, we consider the block fading bidirectional relay channel with a decode-and-forward relay and propose efficient transmission strategies that exploit the block fading property of(More)
