Performance analysis of multi-branch cooperative diversity networks over Nakagami-m fading channels


Adaptive decode and forward (DF) relay are studied over independent non-identical (i.n.d.) flat Nakagami-m fading channels. Taking advantage of the moment generating function (MGF), the closed-form expression for the bit error rate (BER) is derived. The behaviors of Space-Time Block Coding (STBC) have also been investigated over the same channel with DF… (More)
