Routing in Cooperative Wireless Networks with Mutual-Information Accumulation
Cooperation between the nodes of wireless multihop networks can increase communication reliability, reduce energy consumption, and decrease latency. The possible improvements are even greater when nodes perform mutual-information accumulation, e.g., by using rateless codes. In this paper, we investigate routing problems in such networks. Given a network, a source and a destination, our objective is to minimize end-to-end transmission delay under a sum energy constraint. We provide an algorithm that determines which nodes should participate in forwarding the message and what resources (time, energy, bandwidth) should be allocated to each. Our approach factors into two sub-problems, each of which can be solved efficiently. For any node decoding order we show that solving for the optimum resource allocation can be formulated as a linear problem. We then show that the decoding order can be improved systematically by swapping nodes based on the solution of the linear program. Solving a se...
