We investigate routing in cooperative multiple-terminal wireless networks in which the nodes can collaborate with each other in data transmission. First, we motivate cooperation by showing that decode-forward, an information-theoretic cooperative coding strategy, achieves rates significantly higher than those achievable by the conventional multi-hop routing, a point-to-point non-cooperative coding strategy. We then construct an algorithm to find optimal (rate-maximizing) routes for decode… CONTINUE READING
