Abstract

The error performance of collaborative dual-hop wireless transmissions with maximal-ratio combining diversity is presented. Specifically, using the well-known inequality between geometric and harmonic mean of positive random variables, an upper bound for the end-to-end signal-to-noise-ratio is derived, and it is used to efficiently evaluate the average error probability.
