Summary: 
Signal fading due to multipath propagation severely impairs the performance of high speed mobile communication systems. The probability density function (PDF) for the envelope of the received signal using STTD (Space Time Transmitter Diversity) over correlated Nakagami fading channels with additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) is derived in this paper. System performances of noncoherent signals over slow and flat fading channels in the presence of AWGN can be evaluated from this new PDF.
