Selection Combining, and Opportunistic Relaying, with Many Diversity Branches: Switching Rates for Most Common Fading Types

Smith, David


A closed form expression for the switching rate of selection combining, and opportunistic relaying, with any number of diversity branches, is derived for most common types of fading, including, but not limited to — gamma, lognormal, normal, exponential, Rayleigh, Weibull, generalized gamma (or alpha-mu) and Nakagami-m fading, and Rician fading as a close approximation. These types of fading can all be described by the Amoroso distribution, and here we assume that the fading at each branch is...[Show more]
