The probability density function and the cumulative distribution function of the product of shifted exponential variates are obtained in terms of the generalized upper incomplete Fox’s H function. Using these new results, the exact outage capacity of multi carrier transmission through a slow Rayleigh fading channel is presented. Moreover, it is shown that analytical and simulation results are in perfect agreement.
