Exact closed-form expressions are obtained for the outage probability of Nakagami-q (Hoyt) fading channels under Co-Channel Interference (CCI). The scenario considered in this work assumes the joint presence of background white Gaussian noise and independent Rayleigh interferers with arbitrary powers. Outage probability is a key performance metric of wireless communication systems under Co-Channel Interference (CCI). An excellent explanation of this topic can be found and references therein. The Nakagami-q distribution, also referred to as Hoyt distribution, is commonly used to describe the short-term signal variation of certain wireless communication systems subject to fading.
