In this paper, an approach to derivation of the joint trivariate α-μ probability density function (pdf) and cumulative distribution function (cdf) expressions will be presented. Capitalizing on this, closed-form expressions for the cdf and pdf at the output of triple branch selective combiner (SC) in the presence of correlated co-channel interference (CCI) will be determined. The main contribution of this paper is generality of our model, since the expressions accommodate arbitrary correlation structures. General results, from this paper, could be reduced to the specific ones for various fading models and types of correlation. Important performance measures like outage probability (Pout) and average output signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) will also be determined and graphically illustrated for various values of existing parameters.
