Unified Analysis of Transmit Antenna Selection in MIMO Multi-Relay Networks

The authors present a unified asymptotic framework for transmit antenna selection in Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) multi-relay networks with Rician, Nakagami-m, Weibull, and Generalized-K fading channels. They apply this framework to derive new closed-form expressions for the outage probability and Symbol Error Rate (SER) of amplify-and-forward relaying in MIMO multi-relay networks with two distinct protocols: Transmit Antenna Selection with receiver Maximal-Ratio Combining (TAS/MRC), and Transmit Antenna Selection with receiver Selection Combining (TAS/SC). Based on these expressions, the diversity order and the array gain with M-ary phase shift keying and M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation are derived.
