The distribution for the envelope of the received signal over frequency-nonselective slow fading channels with additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) is derived in this paper. System performances of noncoherent M-ary signals over slow and flat fading channels in the presence of AWGN can be evaluated from the new probability density function (PDF) of the envelope.
