  • Bit/symbol error rate and outage probability are common performance metrics used to quantify the reliability of wireless communication systems. Error rates for a broad class of digital modulation schemes and outage probability are expressed as integrals, which often do not have closed-form solutions. Therefore, accurate and simple approximations to develop insight are desirable. To achieve this goal, classical Gaussian Chebyshev quadrature and rational Gaussian Chebyshev quadrature rules are studied in this thesis. These rules are used to compute symbol error rates over multipath fading channels and outage caused by co-channel interference. The accuracy and convergence rate of these rules are investigated.
