Performance Comparison of L-MRC Receivers over Nakagami-M Fading and Hoyt Fading Channels

V. G. Venkatesan | S. Karthik [7] | P. Agilan

Abstract: We present exact closed-form expressions for the statistics of the sum of non-identical squared Nakagami-m random variables and it is shown that it can be written as a weighted sum of Erlang distributions. The analysis includes both independent and Nakagami-m cases with distinct average powers and integer-order fading parameters. The proposed formulation significantly improves previously published results which are in the form of infinite sums or higher order derivatives. The obtained formulae can be applied on the performance analysis of maximal-ratio combining diversity receivers operating over Nakagami-m fading channels.
