Strict upper and lower bounds of exponential-type are derived for the generalized (mth order) Marcum Q-function which enable simple evaluation of a tight upper bound on the average bit-error probability performance of a wide class of noncoherent and differentially coherent communication systems operating over generalized fading channels. For the case of frequency selective fading with arbitrary statistics per independent fading path, the resulting upper hound on performance is expressed in the form of a product of moment generating functions of the instantaneous power random variables that characterize these paths
