Suraweera, Himal A and Karagiannidis, G. K (2008) Closed-Form Error Analysis of the Non-Identical Nakagami-m Relay Fading Channel. IEEE Communications Letters, 12 (4). pp. 259-261. ISSN 1089-7798


We present closed-form expressions for the average bit error probability (ABEP) of BPSK, QPSK and M-QAM of an amplify-and-forward average power scaling dual-hop relay transmission, over non-identical Nakagami-m fading channels, with integer values of m. Additionally, we evaluate in closedform the ABEP under sufficiently large signal-to-noise ratio for the source-relay link, valid for arbitrary m. Numerical and simulation results show the validity of the proposed mathematical analysis and point out the effect of the two hops unbalanced fading conditions on the error performance.
