Expressions for error probabilities have been derived for commonly used signal constellations such as QAM and MPSK. However, closed form expressions cannot be found for more complex signal constellations such as hexagonally packed signals. Saddle point integration (SPI) has been shown to be an efficient method of evaluating the one dimensional cumulative distribution function (CDF) of a random variable. SPI integrates the moment generating function (MGF) of the test statistic instead of… CONTINUE READING
