On optimum regenerative relaying with imperfect channel knowledge
This paper is concerned with the performance of a regenerative relaying protocol on fading wireless channels with imperfect channel knowledge at the receivers. Assuming a single source and a single destination with multiple relay nodes, using binary modulation at the source, we present optimum receiver at the destination on frequency-flat Rayleigh fading channels by taking into account the effect of imperfect channel knowledge at the receivers. Since exact performance analysis of the optimal receiver is complicated due to the non-linear nature of the log-likelihood ratio contribution from the relay, upon using a standard technique in the literature, we present a simple approximate receiver and derive closed-form expression for the average bit error rate (BER) at destination with a single relay node. We also present a simple analytical technique that allows us to numerically evaluate the average BER for an arbitrary number of relay nodes. Finally, with perfect channel estimation our pr...
