In Chaps.  3 and  4, we have considered scenarios where the source communicates directly with the destination. When such direct communications is not possible, relaying communications is necessary to improve the coverage, throughput, and reliability of wireless networks. In this chapter, we focus on resource allocation for a dual-hop source-relay-destination buffer-aided half-duplex (B-HD) relaying network over fading channels. To exploit the buffer-aided relaying capability, the B-HD relaying with adaptive link scheduling (B-HD-ALS) is proposed to efficiently schedule the source-relay link and relay-destination to be active in each frame depending on the instantaneous channel conditions.
