Do decode-and-forward relaying protocols beat transmit diversity?


This paper addresses the question whether decode-and-forward relaying protocols can beat transmit diversity with respect to ε-outage capacity. We derive expressions of ε-outage capacity for transmit diversity, decode-and-forward, selective decode-and-forward, and incremental decode-and-forward. We demonstrate that the relaying protocols outperform transmit… (More)
