New Results on Transceiver Design for Two-Hop Amplify-and-Forward MIMO Relay Systems With Direct Link
Abstract— Conventional amplify-and-forward (AF) protocol for half-duplex two-hop multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) relay systems assumes that the source node transmits the signal only at the first time slot. While making the source node silent at the second time slot simplifies the system design, it is strictly suboptimal.
To improve the system performance, the source node transmits signals during both time slots. < final year projects >
