An exact and rapidly converging infinite series for the average output signal-to-noise ratio in a triple selection diversity system, over correlated Nakagami-fading channels, is presented. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the proposed approach and to point out the effect of the fading correlation to the performance of the combiner, as well as the improvement achieved by the triple selection combining compared to the dual diversity case.
