Power Allocation in Wireless Relay Networks: A Geometric Programming-Based Approach
—1 In this paper, we consider an amplify-and-forward (AF) wireless relay system where multiple source nodes communicate with their corresponding destination nodes with the help of relay nodes. While each user2 is assisted by one relay, one relay can assist many users. Conventionally, each relay node is assumed to equally distribute the available bandwidth and power resources to all sources for which it helps to relay information. Realizing the sub-optimality of this approach, in this paper, we present efficient power allocation schemes to i) maximize the minimum end-to-end signal-to-noise ratio among all users; ii) minimize the total transmit power over all sources; iii) maximize the system throughput. Our approach is based on geometric programming (GP), a well-studied class of nonlinear and nonconvex optimization. Since a GP problem is readily transformed into an equivalent convex optimization problem, optimal power allocation can be obtained efficiently. Numerical results demonst...
