We consider a half-duplex multiple-input multipleoutput relay network with multiple source and relay nodes and a set of collocated destination antennas. Each relay is equipped with multiple antennas and is constrained to map its receive signal linearly to its transmit signal. We devise a gradient based scheme that enables each relay to locally optimize its gain matrix with respect to the achievable sum-rate without requiring explicit knowledge of all fading coefficients characterizing the
