Due to the asynchronous nature of cooperative communications, simultaneous transmissions from two or more nodes are challenging in practice. The existing cooperative communications employing successive transmission from one user node to the other can avoid the synchronization problem but results in large transmission delay. In addition, channel estimation in multi-source cooperative communications is a challenging and costly task due to the amount of training, especially when the number of… CONTINUE READING
