In this paper, we derive two simple asymptotic closed-form formulas for the average bit error probability (BEP) of differential quaternary phase shift keying (DQPSK) with Gray encoding and a simple asymptotic approximation for the average symbol error probability (SEP) of doubly-differential quaternary phase shift keying (DDQPSK) in Nakagami-m fading channels. Compared with the existing BEP/SEP expressions, the derived concise formulas are much more effective in evaluating the asymptotic properties of DQPSK/DDQPSK with various Nakagami fading parameters, the accuracy of which is verified by extensive numerical results.
