Performance Analysis of Space-Time Codes in Realistic Propagation Environments: A Moment Generating Function-Based Approach

Lamahewa, Tharaka; Simon, Marvin K; Kennedy, Rodney; Abhayapala, Thushara


In this paper, we derive analytical expressions for the exact pairwise error probability (PEP) of a space-time coded system operating over spatially correlated fast (constant over the duration of a symbol) and slow (constant over the length of a code word) fading channels using a moment-generating function-based approach. We discuss two analytical techniques that can be used to evaluate the exact-PEPs (and therefore, approximate the average bit error probability (BEP)) in closed form. These...[Show more]
