An Analytical Approximation to the Block Error Rate in Nakagami-m Non-Selective Block Fading Channels
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010

With few exceptions, an analytical closed-form expression for the block error rate (BLER) is lacking in block fading channels. Thus, the BLER is often obtained by numerical methods, such as Monte-Carlo simulations, resulting in additional computational complexity. In this paper, we propose a single-parameter analytical approximation for the BLER in flat, block-fading Nakagami-m channels, which significantly reduces the computational overhead. The low computational cost of the approximation makes it feasible to include the BLER in the objective function of larger optimization problems.
