dc.description.abstractWe present an analysis of a hybrid selection/maximal-ratio combining diversity system over an evenly correlated slow frequency-nonselective Nakagami fading channel, where the correlation coefficient between any pair of the diversity branch gain amplitudes is the same, and all average branch signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) are equal. In this system, the L branches with the largest instantaneous SNR out of N available branches are selected and combined using maximal-ratio combining. From the joint characteristic function (cf) of the instantaneous branch SNRs, we obtain an expression for the cf of the combiner output SNR as a series of elementary cfs. The expression can be conveniently used to obtain the symbol error probability of coherent detection of different M-ary modulation schemes. We illustrate our methodology using M-ary phase-shift keying as an example.en
