Distributed multi-hop communication systems have been introduced recently which allow the application of multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) capacity enhancement techniques over spatially separated relaying mobile terminals. They were shown to yield significant capacity gains over direct communication or non-distributed single-input-single-output (SlSO) relaying networks. The contribution of This work is the derivation of throughput-maximising resource allocation strategies in terms of fractional frame duration and transmission power. It is assumed that distributed terminals cooperate at each relaying stage and that the detection of packets is performed at each relaying stage.
