In this letter, system capacity and error probability of orthogonal space-time block coding (STBC) is considered for PAM/PSK/QAM modulation in correlated Nakagami fading channels. The approach is based on an equivalent scalar AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise) channel with a channel gain proportional to the Frobenius norm of the matrix channel for the STBC. Closed form capacity and error probability expressions are derived for Nakagami fading channels. Numerical results are given to illustrate the theory
