The authors consider a multiuser two-way relay network where multiple pairs of users exchange information with the assistance of a relay node, using orthogonal channels per pair. For a variety of two-way relaying mechanisms, such as Decode and-Forward (DF), Amplify-and-Forward (AF) and Compress- and Forward (CF), the authors investigate the problem of optimally allocating relay's power among the user pairs it assists such that an arbitrary weighted sum rate of all users is maximized, and solve the problem as one or a set of convex problems for each relaying scheme.
