Using a simple linitc integral representation for the bivariate Rayleigh cumulative distribution function recently discovered by the authors, we present expressions for the outage probability and average error probability performances of a dual selective diversity system with correlated slow Rayleigh fading either in closed form (in particular for binary differential phaseshift keying) or in terms of a single integral with linitc limits and an integrand composed of elementary (exponential and trigonometric) functions. Because of their simple form, these expressions readily allow numerical evaluation for cases of practical interest. The results are also extended to the case of slow Nakagamim fading using an alternate representation of the generalized Marcum Q-function.
