Full-Diversity Network Coding for Two-User Cooperative Communications
In this paper, network coding is employed to obtain maximum diversity order in a network where the users have independent information to transmit to a common base station. The authors elaborate on the recently proposed Generalized Dynamic Network Codes (GDNC), which can only achieve part of the maximum diversity order when the inter-user channels are subject to outages. In particular, by allowing the users to perform network decoding, in this paper they show that maximum diversity order can be achieved. Results are restricted to the 2-user case, although some discussion regarding the general case is provided.
