An efficient approximation for the multivariate Weibull distribution with arbitrary correlations is presented. By approximating the Gaussian correlation matrix with a Green's matrix, a useful analytical expression for the joint distribution of the fading envelopes is derived. As an application, the outage performance of multibranch receivers operating over arbitrarily correlated Weibull fading channels is studied. Numerical and computer simulation results are presented and compared to illustrate the accuracy of the proposed approximation
