In this letter, we present an efficient resource allocation algorithm for proportional fair schedulers in mobile multihop relay (MMR) networks. We consider a dual-hop cellular network assisted with a decode-and-forward relay station (RS). Since additional radio resources should be allocated in the wireless link between a base station (BS) and an RS, it is very important to determine the optimal amount of resources for this BS-to-RS link. The proposed resource allocation algorithm maximizes the utility of the overall MMR network in a proportionally fair point of view.
