Coalition Formation Games for Relay Transmission: Stability Analysis Under Uncertainty

Relay transmission or cooperative communication is an advanced technique that can improve the performance of data transmission among wireless nodes. However, while the performance (e.g., throughput) of a source node can be improved through cooperation with a number of relays, this improvement comes at the expense of a degraded performance for the relay nodes due to the resources that they dedicate for helping the source node in its transmission. In this paper, the authors formulate a coalitional game among the wireless nodes that seek to improve their performance by relaying each other's data.
