    Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is widely recognized as a potential multiple access technology for efficient radio spectrum utilization in the fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications standard. In this paper, we study the average achievable rate and outage probability of a cooperative relaying system (CRS) based on NOMA (CRS-NOMA) over wireless links governed by the α\alpha-μ\mu generalized fading model; here α\alpha and μ\mu designate the nonlinearity and clustering parameters, respectively, of each link. The average achievable rate is represented in closed-form using Meijer's G-function and the extended generalized bivariate Fox's H-function (EGBFHF), and the outage probability is represented using the lower incomplete Gamma function. Our results confirm that the CRS-NOMA outperforms the CRS with conventional orthogonal multiple access (CRS-OMA) in terms of spectral efficiency at high transmit signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). It is also evident from our results that with an increase in the value of the nonlinearity/clustering parameter, the SNR at which the CRS-NOMA outperforms its OMA based counterpart becomes higher. Furthermore, the asymptotic analysis of the outage probability reveals the dependency of the diversity order of each symbol in the CRS-NOMA system on the α\alpha and μ\mu parameters of the fading links.Comment: 16 pages, 7 figures, 1 table, accepted in IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) - 2019, Shangha

    Fundamental Limits of Spectrum Sharing for NOMA-based Cooperative Relaying

    Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and spectrum sharing (SS) are two emerging multiple access technologies for efficient spectrum utilization in the fifth-generation (5G) wireless communications standard. In this paper, we present a closed-form analysis of the average achievable sum-rate and outage probability for a NOMA-based cooperative relaying system (CRS) in an underlay spectrum sharing scenario. We consider a peak interference constraint, where the interference inflicted by the secondary (unlicensed) network on the primary-user (licensed) receiver (PU-Rx) should be less than a predetermined threshold. We show that the CRS-NOMA outperforms the CRS with conventional orthogonal multiple access (OMA) for large values of peak interference power at the PU-Rx.Comment: 3 figures, Accepted for presentation in GLOBECOM-NOMAT5G workshop, Abu Dhabi, 201
