Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the performance of a dual-hop amplify-and-forward relay system in Nakagami-m fading channels in the presence of multiple interferers. Based on the new closed-form expression for the cumulative distribution function of a new type of random variable involving a number of independent gamma random variables, we present closed-form expressions for the outage probability, general moments for the end-to-end signal to interference and noise ratio and ergodic capacity of the system. In addition, we look into the high signal to noise ratio regime and characterize the diversity order and coding gain achieved by the system. Our result shows that the diversity of the system is limited by the hop experiencing more severer fading. Moreover, the interference does not reduce the diversity order of the system, instead, it degrades the outage performance by affecting the coding gain of the system.
