We investigate the symbol error rate (SER) of the cooperative transmission with the decode-and-forward relay protocol under Rayleigh fading channels. The technique of orthogonal space-time block coding (OSTBC) is applied at the links source-relay, source-destination and relay-destination. A closed-form SER expression is derived. Simulation results demonstrate the theoretical solutions.
