Maximal-Ratio Combining over Nakagami Fading Channels with an Arbitrary Branch Covariance Matrix

  title={Maximal-Ratio Combining over Nakagami Fading Channels with an Arbitrary Branch Covariance Matrix},
  author={Qian T. Zhang},
The error probability of maximal ratio combiners (MRC’s) in a correlated Nakagami environment with an arbitrary branch covariance matrix is not available in the literature although some work has been done for two special cases with constant and exponential correlations. Correlation structures of this type, though of theroetical interest, may not match to practical situations, even for an antenna array of a totally symmetrical configuration. In this paper, we tackle the general problem by virtue… CONTINUE READING
