In this Letter, we propose a comprehensive framework for performance analysis of cooperative wireless systems using Amplify and Forward (AF) relay methods. The framework relies on the Moment Generating Function (MGF-) based approach for performance analysis of communication systems over fading channels, and on some properties of the Laplace Transform, which allow to develop a single-integral relation between the MGF of a random variable and the MGF of its inverse. Moreover, a simple lower bound for Outage Probability (Pout) and Outage Capacity (OC) computation is also introduced. Numerical and simulation results are provided to substantiate the accuracy of the proposed framework.

Abstract

In this Letter, we propose a comprehensive framework for performance analysis of cooperative wireless systems using Amplify and Forward (AF) relay methods. The framework relies on the Moment Generating Function (MGF-) based approach for performance analysis of communication systems over fading channels, and on some properties of the Laplace Transform, which allow to develop a single-integral relation between the MGF of a random variable and the MGF of its inverse. Moreover, a simple lower bound for Outage Probability (Pout) and Outage Capacity (OC) computation is also introduced. Numerical and simulation results are provided to substantiate the accuracy of the proposed framework.
