Multi-user diversity analysis in MISO amplify-and-forward relaying network

This paper analyzed multi-user diversity performance for multiple input single output (MISO) amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying network with selection combiner, and the closed-form outage probabilities for variable gain relaying and fixed gain relaying network are derived. Based on these results, diversity order is presented for variable gain relaying network. Simulation results validate the derived theoretical results, and the diversity order of variable gain relaying network with available relays is in users’ scenario (where is the number of source transmitter antennas).
