In this letter, we present a moment generating function (MGF) based performance analysis of generalized selection combining (GSC) receivers operating over independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) K fading channels. Analytical expressions for the marginal MGF of the signal-to-noise ratio of a single diversity branch for integer plus one-half values of the fading parameter are obtained and used to efficiently evaluate the average error probability of GSC receivers.
