Cooperative communications enable efficient utilization of communication resources, by allowing nodes or terminals in a communication network to collaborate with each other in information transmission. It is a promising technique for future communication systems. In this article, we first survey cooperative communication schemes and discuss their advantages in improving system capacity and diversity. Following that, we examine the applications of cooperative relaying schemes in LTE-advanced…
