This paper analyzes the performance bonds of a wireless relay system that consists of several relays stations working on both amplifier-and-forward (AF) and decode-and-forward (DF) algorithms. We want to study the outage probability behavior of the proposed mixed AF and DF relay systems under independent Nakagami-m fading channels. In particular, we derive… CONTINUE READING
