In this letter, we investigate the optimal relay placement problem for the amplify-and-forward relay channels. Considering the joint effects of path loss, correlated shadowing, and flat Rayleigh fading, we first derive the approximate outage probability in the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime. Then, the optimal relay placement problem is formulated… CONTINUE READING
