Outage probability of cooperative relay networks in Nakagami-m fading channels
It is well known that the cooperation among nodes can improve the performance of a wireless network. In this letter we analyze the outage probability behaviour of a relay network in Nakagami-m fading channels. A closed-form solution for the outage probability is derived. When m = 1, the results are applicable for Rayleigh fading. Computer simulations confirm the presented mathematical analysis.
