## Abstract

In this paper the exact probability density function of a multivariate α-μ distributed variables with exponentially correlated random variables is derived. Capitalizing on this the joint probability density function (JPDF) is derived for the square ratios of two multivariate exponentially correlated α-μ distributed variables. Closed form expressions are determined for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) and probability density function (PDF) of the maximal and minimal square ratio of two multivariate exponentially correlated α-μ distributions. Using these new formulae, SIR (signal-to-interference) based analysis of selection combining (SC) receiver through standard communication system performance measures can be performed.
