Achievable Rates and Fairness in Rateless Coded Decode-and-Forward Half-Duplex and Full-Duplex Opportunistic Relaying

The achievable rates of three decode-and-forward half-duplex (DFHD) and two decode-and-forward full-duplex (DFFD) protocols are studied under a peak power constraint (PPC) and an average power constraint (APC). Two of the DFHD and one of the DFFD protocols are known. One new, much simpler, DFHD protocol, and one new DFFD protocol are proposed. The fairness… (More)
