In this study, the authors investigate the performance of opportunistic scheduling for the dual-hop amplify-and-forward multi-user cognitive relaying network. Expressions are derived for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) and probability density function of the equivalent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). From the derived CDF, the outage performance of the cognitive network is investigated. Then, an expression for average error probability is derived. Furthermore, simple and generic asymptotic expressions for the outage and error ...
