New, exact expressions concerning the bivariate Nakagami-m processes with arbitrary correlation and fading parameters are derived. More specifically, the following are obtained in the present work: joint moment generating function; joint probability density function; joint cumulative distribution function; power correlation coefficient; and several statistics related to the signal-to-noise ratio at the output of the selection combiner, namely, outage probability, probability density function, and mean SNR. The expressions make use of the well known generalized Laguerre polynomials. They are mathematically tractable and flexible enough to accommodate a myriad of correlation scenarios, useful in the analysis of a more general fading environment. We maintain, however, that a relation among the correlation coefficients of the corresponding Gaussian components must be kept so that convergence is attained.
