Signaling constellations for fading channels

  title={Signaling constellations for fading channels},
  author={Xiaodai Dong and Norman C. Beaulieu and Paul H. Wittke},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Communications},
The performances of various coherent 8-ary and 16-ary modulations in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and slowly fading channels are analyzed. New expressions for the exact symbol error rates (SER) in fading with diversity combining are derived for any two-dimensional signaling format having polygonal decision boundaries. Maximal ratio combining, equal gain combining, and selection combining are considered. The SER formulas obtained make it possible for the first time to optimize parameters… CONTINUE READING
