This letter provides a comprehensive overview and extension of recent results on outage probabilities and bit-error rates (BER) for optimal combiners in the presence of multiple interferers and additive noise. Desired signal and interferers are subject to flat Rayleigh fading and all channels are independent. In addition to summarizing previous work, this letter also derives the BER for a wider range of modulations than previously considered. We show that previous approximate results on the equal power interferer case where the number of interferers is less than the number of antenna elements can be made exact in a straightforward way. Finally we extend previous work on the single and double interferer case to the general case of arbitrary numbers of interferers.
