We use a virtual-branch technique to derive higher order statistics of the output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of antenna subset diversity in a multipath fading environment. In particular, closed-form expressions of the cumulants, central moments, skewness, and kurtosis for various antenna subset diversity schemes are derived. These measures characterize the statistical behavior of the output SNR distribution.
