In this letter, exact closed form expressions for the level crossing rate and the autocorrelation function are derived for maximum-ratio-combining with independent but unbalanced diversity branches. The novel expressions are given for Rayleigh propagation and an arbitrary number of diversity branches. The derived identities can be applied to isotropic as(More)
In this paper, the second-order statistics of the signal to noise ratio (SNR) at the output of a multiple-inputmultiple-output (MIMO) system employing maximal ratio combining (MRC) are analyzed. Exact expressions for the level crossing rate (LCR) and the average fade duration (AFD) are derived for the Rayleigh propagation and arbitrary channel matrix(More)
The second-order statistics of the time varying signal to noise ratio at the output of a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) system with maximal ratio combining (MRC) are analyzed. Exact closed-form expressions for the level crossing rate and the average fade duration are derived for the Ricean propagation and arbitrary channel matrix dimensions. Novel(More)
In this study, exact closed-form expressions for the second-order statistics of the signal-to-noise ratio at a maximum ratio combiner (MRC) output for a Nakagami fading channel are derived. Using the joint characteristic function for the MRC output and its time derivative, the level crossing rate, average fading duration and autocorrelation function(More)
In this paper, the exact closed-form expressions for the level crossing rate (LCR) and the temporal autocorrelation function (ACF) of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), at the output of the spatially correlated multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems with orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs), are derived. The expressions are derived for the case(More)
