Abstract

This letter evaluates some new integrals whose integrand involves the generalized Marcum Q function, both of whose arguments are linear functions of the integration variable. The resulting closed-form expressions obtained for these integrals are then applied to the error probability evaluation of noncoherent and differentially coherent detection with postdetection equal gain combining over Rayleigh and Nakagami fading channels.
