Abstract

The performance of distributed space-time codes using amplify-and-forward relaying over independent, non-identical, Nakagami-m fading channels is analysed. The symbol error rate is derived using the moment generating function (MGF). The probability density function and MGF of the total SNR are first derived. Then, the MGF is used to determine the error rate.
