Abstract-- In order to adapt to the time-varying nature
of wireless channels, various channel-adaptive schemes
have been proposed to exploit inherent spatial diversity in
wireless ad hoc networks where there are usually alternate
forwarding nodes available at a given forwarding node.
However, existing schemes along this line are designed
based on heuristics, implying room for performance en-
hancement. Thereby, to seek a theoretical foundation for
improving spatial diversity gain, we formulate the selection
of the next-hop relay as a sequential decision problem
and derive a general "Optimal Stopping Relaying (OSR)"
framework for designing such spatial-diversity schemes. As
a particular example, assuming Rayleigh fading channels,
we implement an OSR strategy to optimize information
