PROJECT TITLE :
On the Study of Half-Duplex Asymmetric Two-Way Relay Transmission Using an Amplify-and-Forward Relay
This paper studies the information-theoretic metric of outage probability for a half-duplex asymmetric two-way amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying. Unlike current research activities, our main purpose is to examine the impact of traffic asymmetry on system outage probability. First, an exact but two-integral-form outage probability is derived over Rayleigh fading channels. To provide more insight, a closed-form asymptotic outage probability is then obtained. It is shown that the outage probability in the system is determined only by the one-way channel or related to the two-way links, depending on the asymmetric level of the two senders' target rates and the terminals' average transmission powers. Following this analysis, optimum power allocation and opportunistic relay selection are studied to optimize the overall performance of the considered AF scenario. Next, with the aid of traffic knowledge, novel power allocation and relay selection criteria are proposed, followed by an analysis of the outage probability with the relay selection. Simulation experiments are performed to validate the proposed studies in this paper. The results show that the proposed power allocation and relay selection methods can achieve significant performance gains in terms of outage probability, regardless of symmetric or asymmetric traffic and channels.
