Though opportunistic relaying coded cooperation is known as an efficient cooperation scheme for cooperative multi-relay networks, the existing works have the disadvantage of low resource utilization or high system complexity. In this paper, the authors focus on how to achieve a balance between resource utilization and system complexity by proposing an novel opportunistic relaying coded cooperation with selective source-to-destination parity transmission over Nakagami-m fading channels without additional cost. They derive closed-form expressions of the outage probability and explicit upper bounds on bit error probability using the statistical characteristic of the Signal-to-Noise Ratios (SNRs) and confirm that the proposed scheme outperforms both opportunistic Amplify-and-Forward (AF) and opportunistic Decode-and-Forward (DF).
