In this work, data signaling rates and error performances of half-duplex and full-duplex relaying/cooperative systems in flat fading channels are investigated in ideal and non-ideal self interference cancellation cases. A hybrid relaying system that is able to choose between full-duplex or half-duplex transmission according to the value of self interference cancellation parameter is proposed in order to maximize the data rate of the system. Single relay system is considered for amplify-and-forward and decode-and-forward techniques. Channel models are selected according to Nakagami-m distribution since it provides a wider fading interval according to m-parameter.
