The performances of M-ary PSK (MPSK) and QAM (MQAM) systems using L-branch selection combining (SC) diversity reception in frequency-nonselective slow Nakagami fading channels are derived theoretically. For integer values of the Nakagami fading parameter m, the general formula for evaluating symbol error rate (SER) of MPSK signals in the independent branch diversity system comprises numerical analyses with the integral-form expressions. An exact closed-form SER performance of MQAM signals under the effect of SC diversity via numerical integration is presented.
