Executive Summary

In their landmark paper Cover and El Gamal proposed different coding strategies for the relay channel with a single relay supporting a communication pair. These strategies are the decode-and-forward and compress-and-forward approach. They also derived a general lower bound on the capacity of a relay network which relies on the mixed application of both strategies. So far, only parts of their work - the decode-and-forward and the compress-and-forward strategy - have been applied to networks with multiple relays This paper formulates a mixed strategy for Gaussian multiple relay networks using a combined approach of partial decode-and-forward with N +1 levels and the ideas of successive refinement with different side information at the receivers.
