In this paper, we investigate multi-service forwarding in selfish wireless networks (SeWN) with selfish relay nodes (RN). The RN's node-selfishness is characterized from the perspectives of its residual energy and the incentive paid by the source, by which the degree of intrinsic selfishness (DeIS) and the degree of extrinsic selfishness (DeES) are defined. Meanwhile, a framework of the node-selfishness management is conceived to extract the RNs' node-selfishness information (NSI). Based on the RN's NSI, the expected energy cost and expected service profit are determined for analyzing the effect of the RN's node-selfishness on the multi-service forwarding. Moreover, the optimal incentive paid by the source is obtained for minimizing its cost and, at the same time, effectively stimulating the multi-service delivery. Simulation validate our analysis.
