The authors calculate the exact (pairwise) error probability for an arbitrary component-interleaved 2-D constellation over the Rayleigh fading channel. Using this result, they improve the accuracy of the performance analysis at high error rates. For illustration, this is applied to signal sets derived from 4-PSK and 16-QAM over the Rayleigh fading channel.
