This paper proposes and analyzes a novel differential distributed beamforming strategy for decentralized two-way relay networks. In our strategy, the phases of the received signals at all relays are synchronized without requiring channel feedback or training symbols. Bit error rate (BER) expressions of the proposed strategy are provided for coherent and differential M-PSK modulation. Upper bounds, lower bounds, and simple approximations of the BER are also derived. Based on the theoretical and simulated BER performance, the proposed strategy offers a high system performance and low decoding complexity and delay without requiring channel state information at any transmitting or receiving antenna. Furthermore, the simple approximation of the BER upper bound shows that the proposed strategy enjoys the full diversity gain which is equal to the number of transmitting antennas.

In this article, a novel two-way double-relay selection strategy with its bit error rate (BER) performance analysis is proposed. In this novel strategy, as a first step we choose two relays out of a set of relay-nodes in a way to maximize the system performance in terms of BER and complexity. In the second step, the selected relays apply orthogonal space-time coding scheme using the three-phase protocol to establish a two-way communication between the transceivers, which will lead to a significa...
Many noncoherent distributed strategies for cooperative sensor networks that do not require channel knowledge at any antenna to overcome the overhead involved in channel estimation are lately suggested; however, these strategies suffer from low system performance in terms of bit error rate (BER) and a comparably high decoding complexity. Differential beamforming strategies have recently been proposed to overcome these problems; however, they are implemented using the four-phase protocol. Thus, w...

Beamforming (BF) technique in cooperative multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna arrays improves signal to noise ratio (SNR) of the intended user. The challenge is to design transmit beamforming vectors for every user while limiting the co-channel interference (CCI) from other users. In this paper, we proposed cooperative beamforming based on Signal-to-Leakage Ratio (SLR) to exploit the leakage power as a useful power in the second time slot after user cooperation, for this purpose succes...
This paper proposes a new two-way double-relay selection strategy for wireless cooperative communication systems with its bit error rate (BER) performance analysis. In this work, two relays are first chosen to maximize the overall system performance in terms of BER. Then, either the two-phase or three-phase protocol is performed to achieve two-directional communications between the communicating terminals through the selected relay nodes that apply orthogonal space-time coding (STC) scheme in a ...
