In this paper, a simple procedure for computing the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the r-th order statistic for correlated Nakagami fading channels with an arbitrary covariance matrix is proposed. This method, numerical in nature, is useful in assessing the impact of correlation on diversity system performance. The method represents a significant theoretical tool that can be applied to the analysis of diversity systems operating over correlative Nakagami-m fading channels. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the effect of fading correlation and fading severity on the received signal statistics.
