In this letter, we analyze the outage performance of a dual-hop relay fading channel in an interference-limited environment. We first derive closed-form expressions for the outage probability of both the amplify-and-forward (AF) and the decode-and-forward (DF) relay channels, based on which, the diversity analysis is conducted. In addition, we show that in terms of the outage probability performance, the worst scenario appears to be the case with equal received-power interferers, for a given total received interference power.
