This is the second in a two-part series of papers on statistical performance analysis of a general cross-layer automatic repeat request (ARQ) cooperative diversity (ACD) system. In order to obtain the theoretical formulas of end-to-end performance parameters, we develop a time division multiple access (TDMA)-based absorbing Markov model to help find all possible transition probabilities of each transmission process. Based on this model and statistical analysis, we derive two tight closed-form expressions in terms of packet delivery failure probability and packet delivery delay distribution. In addition, simulation results by Monte Carlo simulations demonstrate the correctness of our analysis eventually.
