This letter presents an analysis of the combined use of cooperative diversity and multiuser diversity (MUD) in multi-source multi-relay networks. A joint selection scheme, which selects the best source-relay pair to access the channel, is proposed. The main contribution of our work is the derivation of the exact and asymptotic expressions for the outage probability of the system with amplify-and-forward (AF) protocol. From these expressions it is indicated that the total diversity order of M +N can be achieved, where M and N are the number of source nodes and relay nodes, respectively. Based on the outage probability in high signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) region, the optimum power allocation scheme is also given to improve the system performance.
