Half duplex devices are widely used in today's wireless networks. These devices can only send or receive, but not do both at the same time. In this paper, we use cooperative decode-forward relay strategies to increase the throughput of half-duplex wireless networks. Due to the half duplex constraint, relays need to carefully choose their transmission states in order to maximize the throughput. We show that the transmission schedule optimization can be formulated as a linear programming problem… CONTINUE READING
