Device-to-device (D2D) communications are recognized as a key component of future wireless networks which will help to improve spectral efficiency and network densification simultaneously. In order to guarantee a quality of service (QoS) to the cellular links, the transmit power of the D2D nodes needs to be restricted, which has lead to a poor link quality over D2D transmission. One viable option to improve the D2D link quality is incorporating cooperative relays into D2D networks. However most of the existing published work in relay assisted D2D networks has assumed that relay nodes cooperate spontaneously. This cannot always be guaranteed and we take this into account by considering a fundamental model on which donation-based cooperation depends. In par- ticular we model relay cooperation as a donation game based on social comparison and characterize cooperation probability in an evolutionary context. When applying this model we evaluate the outage and capacity of relay assisted D2D network using a stochastic geometric framework.
