i am trying to evaluate the performance of a multi-antenna communication system that uses space-time coding. To do so, i would need to derive a closed form expression for the pairwise error probability (PEP) which is the probability that the receiver would mistakenly decode (for exemple) Xa for Xb. i have found in literature that the (MGF) approach is used. So i need some resources on the use of this method for this purpose. Thank you

    $\begingroup$ I think the reference you're looking for is Giorgio Taricco and Ezio Biglieri. "Exact pairwise error probability of space-time codes." IEEE Transactions on Information Theory 48.2 (2002): 510-513. It describes exactly this method. $\endgroup$ – Florian Sep 13 '19 at 13:30
