Terminal relaying offers an effective means for improving the performance of OFDMA-based wireless networks. However, revrr{with the increase in the number of relaying terminals (RTs), their coordination becomes a cumbersome task.} To address this drawback, in this paper an autonomous scheme is proposed whereby the RTs assign resource blocks (RBs) to incoming wireless terminals (WTs) in a way that minimizes the number of hit occurrences at which the same RB is assigned to multiple WTs. The proposed scheme uses cyclic group generators to determine the sequence of RBs to be assigned by each RT. This scheme is particularly beneficial in terminal relaying systems in which the distribution of the WTs is nonuniform and the channel quality indicators are not available. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme performs significantly better than currently available autonomous assignment schemes.
