Abstract—The multiuser communication channel, in which multiple users exchange information with the help of a single relay terminal, called the multiway relay channel, is considered. In this model, multiple interfering clusters of users communicate simultaneously, where the users within the same cluster wish to exchange messages among themselves. It is assumed that the users cannot receive each other’s signals directly, and hence the relay terminal is the enabler of communication. A relevant metric to study in this scenario is the symmetric rate achievable by all users, which we identify for amplifyandforward (AF), decodeandforward (DF) and compressandforward (CF) protocols. We also present an upper bound for comparison. The two extreme cases, namely full data exchange, in which every user wants to receive messages of all other users, and pairwise data exchange, consisting of multiple twoway relay channels, are investigated and presented in detail.

When two or more users in a wireless network transmit simultaneously, their electromagnetic signals are linearly superimposed on the channel. As a result, a receiver that is interested in one of these signals sees the others as unwanted interference. This property of the wireless medium is typically viewed as a hindrance to reliable communication over a network. However, using a recently developed coding strategy, interference can in fact be harnessed for network coding. In a wired network, (linear) network coding refers to each intermediate node taking its received packets, computing a linear combination over a finite field, and forwarding the outcome towards the destinations. Then, given an appropriate set of linear combinations, a destination can solve for its desired packets. For certain topologies, this strategy can attain significantly higher throughputs over routingbased strategies. Reliable physical layer network coding takes this idea one step further: using judiciously chosen linear errorcorrecting codes, intermediate nodes in a wireless network can directly recover linear combinations of the packets from the observed noisy superpositions of transmitted signals. Starting with some simple examples, this survey explores the core ideas behind this new technique and the possibilities it offers for communication over interferencelimited wireless networks.

AbstractIn this paper, we study the problem of joint carrier frequency offset (CFO) and channel estimation for twoway relay network (TWRN) that comprises two source terminals and one relay node. We build up the signal model, from which we identify the CFO and channels at the two source terminals. As the very first attempt to discuss the joint CFO and the channel estimation for TWRN, we consider relay node that purely amplifies and forwards, which is also known as the repeater. The new model is different from the traditional ones in that the unknown CFO is combined with only part of the channel parameters. We then propose two joint estimation methods, i.e., the approximate maximumlikelihood (ML) method and the nullingbased method. The CramérRao Bounds (CRB) of both methods are derived in closedform. Simulations are then provided to corroborate the proposed studies.

Abstract—A general class of wireless relay networks with a single sourcedestination pair is considered. Intermediate nodes in the network employ an amplifyandforward scheme to relay their input signals. In this case the overall inputoutput channel from the source via the relays to the destination effectively behaves as an intersymbol interference channel with colored noise. Unlike previous work we formulate the problem of the maximum achievable rate in this setting as an optimization problem with no assumption on the network size, topology, and signaltonoise ratio. Previous work considered only scenarios wherein relays use all their power to amplify their received signals. We demonstrate that this may not always maximize the achievable rate in amplifyandforward relay networks. The proposed formulation allows us to not only recover known results on the performance of the amplifyandforward schemes for some simple relay networks but also characterize the performance of such schemes in more complex relay networks which cannot be addressed in a straightforward manner with existing approaches. Using cutset arguments, we derive simple upper bounds on the capacity of general wireless relay networks. Through various examples, we show that a large class of amplifyandforward relay networks can achieve rates within a constant factor of these upper bounds asymptotically in network parameters. I.

In this paper, a new twoway relaying scheme based on computeandforward (CMF) framework and relay selection strategies is proposed, which provides a higher throughput than the conventional twoway relaying schemes. Two cases of relays with or without feedback transmission capability are considered. An upper bound on the computation rate of each relay is derived, and based on that, a lower bound on the outage probability of the system is presented assuming block Rayleigh fading channels. Numerical results show that while the average sum rate of the system without feedback, named as Max ComputeandForward (MCMF), reaches the derived upper bound only in low SNRs, that of the system with feedback, named as Aligned ComputeandForward (ACMF) reaches the bound in all SNRs. However, both schemes approach the derived lower bound on the outage probability in all SNRs. For the ACMF, another power assignment based on applying the constraint on the total powers of both users rather than on the power of each separately, is introduced. The result shows that the ACMF performs better under the new constraint. Moreover, the numerical results show that the outage performance, average sum rate, and symbol error rate of the proposed schemes are significantly better than those of twostep and threestep decodeandforward (DF) and amplifyandforward (AF) strategies for the examples considered. Index Terms compute and forward, max computeandforward, aligned computeandforward, feedback, twoway relaying, relay selection, outage probability, average sum rate, symbol error rate. I

We investigate channelcoded physicallayer network coding in a twoway relaying scenario, where the end nodes A and B choose their symbols, SA and SB, from a small nonbinary field, F, and adopt a nonbinary PSK modulation. The relay then directly decodes the networkcoded combination aSA + bSB over F from the noisy received superimposed channelencoded packets. The advantage of working over nonbinary fields is that it offers the opportunity to decode according to multiple decoding coefficients (a, b). As only one of the networkcoded combinations needs to be successfully decoded, a key advantage is then a reduction in error probability by attempting to decode against all choices of (a, b). In this paper, we compare different mappings between F and the PSK constellation, and prove that many have identical performance in terms of frame error rate (FER). Moreover, we derive a lower bound on the performance of decoding the networkcoded combinations. Simulation results show that if we adopt either i) concatenated ReedSolomon and convolutional coding or ii) lowdensity parity check codes, our nonbinary constellations can outperform the binary case significantly in the sense of minimizing the FER and, in particular, the ternary constellation has the best FER performance among all considered cases.

Abstract—We design novel partial decodeforward (PDF) schemes for the Gaussian twoway relay channel with direct link. Different from pure decodeforward, each user divides its message into two parts and the relay decodes only one part of each. The relay then generates its codeword as a function of the two decoded parts and forwards to the two users. We propose PDF schemes for both the full and halfduplex modes. In full duplex, the scheme is based on block Markov encoding and forward joint decoding over 2 consecutive blocks. In half duplex, the transmission is divided into 4 phases, in which one user transmits during the first phase, the other during the second phase, both users transmit during the third phase and the relay transmits during the last phase. The relay decodes a part of the messages from both users at the end of phase 3 and each user decodes only at the end of phase 4. Analysis and simulation show that if for one user, the direct link is stronger than the usertorelay link, while for the other, the direct link is weaker, then PDF can achieve a rate region strictly larger than the timeshared region of pure decodeforward and direct transmission for both full and halfduplex modes.

In this paper, we propose a new transmission scheme, named as Integer ForcingandForward (IFF), for communications among multipair multipleantenna users in which each pair exchanges their messages with the help of a single multi antennas relay in the multipleaccess and broadcast phases. The proposed scheme utilizes computeandforward (CMF) strategy and Integer Forcing Linear Receiver (IFLR) at relay, which uses equations, i.e., linear integercombinations of messages, to harness the intrapair interference. Accordingly, we propose the design of mean squared error (MSE) based transceiver, including precoder and projection matrices for the relay and users, assuming that the perfect channel state information (CSI) is available. In this regards, in the multipleaccess phase, we introduce two new MSE criteria for the related precoding and filter designs, i.e., the sum of the equations ’ MSE (SumEquation MSE) and the maximum of the equations ’ MSE (MaxEquation MSE), to exploit the equations in the relay. Moreover, in the broadcast phase, we use the two traditional MSE criteria, i.e. the sum of the users ’ mean squred errors (Sum MSE) and the maximum of the users ’ mean squared errors (Max MSE), to design the related precoding and filters for recovering relay’s equations in the users. Then, we consider a more practical scenario with imperfect CSI. For this case, IFLR receiver is modified, and another transceiver design is proposed, which take into account the effect of channels estimation error. We evaluate the performance of our proposed strategy and compare the results with the conventional amplifyandforward (AF) and decodeandforward (DF) strategies for the same scenario. The results

Abstract—The problem of maximum rate achievable with analog network coding for a unicast communication over a layered relay network with directed links is considered. A relay node performing analog network coding scales and forwards the signals received at its input. Recently this problem has been considered under certain assumptions on per node scaling factor and received SNR. Previously, we established a result that allows us to characterize the optimal performance of analog network coding in network scenarios beyond those that can be analyzed using the approaches based on such assumptions. The key contribution of this work is a scheme to greedily compute a lower bound to the optimal rate achievable with analog network coding in general layered networks. This scheme allows for exact computation of the optimal achievable rates in a wider class of layered networks than those that can be addressed using existing approaches. For the specific case of the Gaussian Nrelay diamond network, to the best of our knowledge, the proposed scheme provides the first exact characterization of the optimal rate achievable with analog network coding. For general layered networks, our scheme allows us to compute optimal rates within a “small ” gap from the cutset upper bound asymptotically in the source power. I.
