Abstract:

The detection probability for a nonfading signal present on M multiple observations and subjected to a quadratic combination of receiver matched-filter outputs is given by the Q sub M-function. In the report, several integrals of the Q sub M-function are evaluated that aid in computing the performance in fading channels direct numerical integration of the Q sub M-function, which is time-consuming, is therefore circumvented. Numerical evaluation of Q sub M is considered in another paper.
