Abstract The maximum likelihood detection in differential AF and DF cooperative networks using M-ary differential phase shift keying with Rayleigh fading, has practical complexity. To reduce the complexity of the maximum likelihood detector, two algorithms were analysed. The first algorithm eliminates number of symbols in ML search. In high signal-to-noise ratios, this algorithm determines a single symbol, means without calculating the likelihood function, maximum likelihood estimate of the information symbol, can be obtained. For low to medium signal-to- noise ratios multiple symbols were determined, thus the closed-form approximate expression was derived, which is very accurate throughout the whole signal to noise ratio range. Closed form approximation requires only five sample evaluation per symbol. Combining these algorithms closed-form approximate maximum likelihood detector was obtained. Finally, the obtained BER performance of closed form ML detector is compared with bit error performance of diversity combiner.

I.INTRODUCTION

In cooperative networks the function of relay is to retransmit received signal from source to destination. Here the information symbol is modulated by differential phase shift keying and corresponding symbol is detected using maximum likelihood detector at the receiver. Objective of the paper is to reduce complexity of maximum likelihood detector to estimate the single information symbol. As the instantaneous channel state information is not available at the receiver M-differential phase shift keying modulation is used. To reduce complexity, two algorithms were analysed and denoted as closed form approximate ML detector. In high SNR, the algorithm detects single information symbol without calculating likelihood function. For low to medium SNR, multiple symbols were detected hence, calculating likelihood function becomes inevitable. Thus closed form approximation was made for

In [3] suboptimum detectors is used, it has lower complexity but some degradation in performance. In [4] simple diversity combiner is used but diversity combiner suffers from strict sub optimality as it does net exploits non Gaussianity of overall noise at destination. This may lead to significant performance loss compared with optimum (ML) detector.

SYSTEM MODEL

Cooperative networks consist of source S, relay R, and destination D shown in Fig 1. Let hsd denote channel coefficient of direct link between S and D, hsr denote channel coefficient of first hop from S and R, hrd denote channel coefficient of second hop from R and D.

IV. ML DETECTOR FOR M-DPSK

In DPSK signalling, information c(k) is carried by the phase difference of two consecutive signals, hence the receiving signals has been considered as vector.

Closed-Form Approximate condition for symbol estimation

For || = 1, the ML estimate of c(k) is immediately obtained from the singleton without solving the LF integral. For > 1, the LF integral is approximately calculated. Therefore, closed-form approximate ML detectors are as follows:

Here for estimating the single information symbol, the detector needs to check the entire constellation set.

VI. SIMULATION RESULTS

The distance between source and destination is normalized to unity and denoted by d, 0 d 1.The total signal transmission power in the network is E=Es+Er. For various SNR, average bit error rate value can be evaluated and the inference values are tabulated for both amplify and forward networks, as well as decode and forward networks by using ML detector and diversity combiner.

In this paper, closed form approximation for maximum likelihood detector was derived for Amplify and Forward, decode and forward cooperative networks employing M- Differential phase shift keying in Rayleigh fading. The algorithm was analysed, which can substantially reduce the complexity of ML detection. Specifically, the first algorithm substantially narrows down the ML search while causing no loss of optimality. The second algorithm provides a very accurate closed-form approximation for the LF. Combining these algorithms, a closed-form approximate ML detector was obtained. In future closed form approximation can be done for amplify and forward networks using multiple relays.
