Abstract

We consider an OFDM-based decode-and-forward relay network with multiple uncorrelated equal power interferers over frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channels and derive a unified closed-form expression of average symbol-error ratio for M-ary phase-shift-keying (M-PSK) modulation. Simulations are carried out to validate our analyses.
