The key advantage of successive relaying (SR) networks is their ability to mimic the full-duplex (FD) operation with half-duplex (HD) relays. However, the main challenge that comes with such schemes is the associated inter-relay interference (IRI). In this work, we propose a reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS)-enhanced SR network, where one RIS is deployed near each of the two relay nodes to provide spatial suppression of IRI, and to maximize the gain of desired signals. The resultant max…

Joint Beamforming and Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface Design for Two-Way Relay Networks
A Channel-Gain-Maximization Maximal-Ratio-Beamforming (CGM-MRB) algorithm is proposed to solve a RIS-assisted two-way relay network in which two users exchange information via the base station with the help of a RIS.
Hybrid RIS-Empowered Reflection and Decode-and-Forward Relaying for Coverage Extension
Two hybrid transmission schemes combining a passive reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) with decode-and-forward relaying in a synergistic manner offer a flexible as well as cost-and power-efficient solution for coverage extension in future generation wireless networks.

This paper proposes a channel aware successive relaying protocol, also referred to as CAO-SIR, which is capable of thoroughly mitigating inter-relay interference by carefully adapting relays' transmission order and rate and presents its equivalent parallel relay channel model, based upon which the adaptive relay selection and power allocation schemes are proposed.
Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces for Energy Efficiency in Wireless Communication
The adoption of a reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) for downlink multi-user communication from a multi-antenna base station is investigated and the results show that the proposed RIS-based resource allocation methods are able to provide up to 300% higher energy efficiency in comparison with the use of regular multi-Antenna amplify-and-forward relaying.
A Hybrid Relay and Intelligent Reflecting Surface Network and Its Ergodic Performance Analysis
It is demonstrated that for practical scenarios where the amount of radiated power and/or the number of reflecting elements are/is limited, the performance of an IRS-supported system can be significantly enhanced by utilizing a simple Decode-and-Forward (DF) relay.
AF two-path half duplex relaying with inter-relay self interference cancellation: diversity analysis and its improvement
A simple but novel precoding scheme is proposed which allows the system to achieve a full diversity order of three while maintaining the spectral efficiency gain of the two-path relaying protocol and a robust precoding design to achieve full Diversity order with high coding gain is proposed.
