Abstract—Based on incremental amplify-and-forward (IAF) relaying scheme, the exact closed-form outage probability (OP) expressions of the multiple-mobile-relay-based mobile-to-mobile (M2M) cooperative networks with relay selection over N-Nakagami fading channels are derived in this paper. Then the OP performance under different conditions is evaluated through numerical simulations. The numerical simulation results coincide with the theoretical results well, and the accuracy of the analytical results is verified. The simulation results showed that: the fading coefficient, the number of cascaded components, the relative geometrical gain, and the power-allocation parameter have an important influence on the OP performance.
