The Impact of CSI and Power Allocation on Relay Channel Capacity and Cooperation Strategies
Capacity gain from transmitter and receiver cooperation are compared in a relay network where the cooperating nodes are close together. Under quasi-static channels, when all nodes have equal average transmit power along with full channel state information (CSI), it is shown that transmitter cooperation outperforms receiver cooperation, whereas the opposite is true when power is optimally allocated among the cooperating nodes but only CSI at the receiver (CSIR) is available. When the nodes have equal power with CSIR only, cooperative schemes are shown to offer no capacity improvement over non-cooperation under the same network power constraint. When the system is under optimal power allocation with full CSI, the decode-and-forward transmitter cooperation rate is close to its cut-set capacity upper bound, and outperforms compress-and-forward receiver cooperation. Under Rayleigh fading in the high SNR regime, similar conclusions follow. Cooperative systems provide resilience to channel f...
