Abstract

Sum of Weibull random variables (RVs) is naturally of prime importance in wireless communications and related areas. Through the medium of the selection of poles as orthogonal Laguerre polynomials in Cauchy residue theorem, the moment-generation function (MGF), the probability density function (PDF) and the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the sum of L ≥ 2 mutually independent any random variables (RVs) are represented in terms of fast convergent series, and the obtained results are applied to the sum of Weibull RVs in order to find symbol error rate (SER) and outage probability (OP) performance.
