Recently, as it can increase the capacity of wireless networks greatly through spatial diversity by taking advantage of antennas on other nodes, Cooperative Communication (CC) has been obtaining more and more attention. However, as the selfish nature, the wireless node may be unwilling to serve as relay node if they can't get the corresponding reward. In this paper, the authors constructs a real double-auction scenario between source nodes and relay nodes instead of idealized truthful market which may obtain relatively lower system performance. They consider the system performance involving successful source-relay pairs, system capacity and Social Welfare (SW).
