We propose a technique to calculate the diversity gain for a vector channel when the noises have any nonsingular distribution and the fading coefficients have arbitrary distribution. This technique uses the serial expansion of the outage probability of the instantaneous normalized receive SNR to obtain the diversity gain. The approach is simpler than using the pairwise symbol error rate to analyze the diversity gain.
