Relay selection enhances the performance of the cooperative networks by selecting the links with higher capacity. Meanwhile link adaptation improves the spectral efficiency of wireless data-centric networks through adapting the modulation and coding schemes (MCS) to the current link condition. In this paper, relay selection is combined with link adaptation for distributed beamforming in a two-hop regenerative cooperative system. A novel signaling mechanism and related optimal algorithms are… 
A New Mobile Relay Selection Scheme in Vehicle Cooperative Communication Network
Existing works about relay selection in Vehicle Cooperative Communication (VCC) network assume that only relay nodes move around while source nodes and destination nodes are static. However, in the
Link adaptation for mitigating Earth-to-Space propagation effects on the NASA SCaN testbed
In Earth-to-Space communications, well-known propagation effects such as path loss and atmospheric loss can lead to fluctuations in the strength of the communications link between a satellite and its


A simple Cooperative diversity method based on network path selection
A novel scheme that first selects the best relay from a set of M available relays and then uses this "best" relay for cooperation between the source and the destination and achieves the same diversity-multiplexing tradeoff as achieved by more complex protocols.

This paper proposes marrying channel-adaptive relaying with rate adaptation (or adaptive modulation-coding), and proposes a new, SNR-based rate adaptation scheme for use in802.11 systems that requires no modification to the standard 802.11 frame structure.
Single and multiple relay selection schemes and their achievable diversity orders
Several SNR-suboptimal multiple relay selection schemes are proposed, whose complexity is linear in the number of relays and are proved to achieve full diversity.
Energy-Efficient Cooperative Relaying over Fading Channels with Simple Relay Selection
This work considers a cooperative wireless network where a set of nodes cooperate to relay in parallel the information from a source to a destination using a decode-and-forward approach, and describes the structure of the optimal transmission scheme.
CTH15-5: Rate Adaptation for Cooperative Systems
Coded cooperation with adaptation provides substantial improvement over direct transmission and conventional multi- hop and cooperative multihop enables further improvements over coded cooperation by fully exploiting cooperative diversity as well as rate adaptation and achieves the highest throughput performance among these five transmission schemes.
Cooperative diversity in wireless networks: Efficient protocols and outage behavior
Using distributed antennas, this work develops and analyzes low-complexity cooperative diversity protocols that combat fading induced by multipath propagation in wireless networks and develops performance characterizations in terms of outage events and associated outage probabilities, which measure robustness of the transmissions to fading.
Distributed beamforming in wireless relay networks with quantized feedback
This paper uses the generalized Lloyd algorithm (GLA) to design the quantizer of the feedback information and specifically to optimize the bit error rate (BER) performance of the system, and analytically shows that a simple feedback scheme based on relay selection can achieve full diversity.
