A goal of this paper is to theoretically derive the outage probability of the correlated source transmission in block Rayleigh fading channels. The correlation between the two information sources is assumed to be expressed by the bit flipping model, where the information bits transmitted from the second transmitter are the flipped version of the information bits transmitted from the first one, with a probability pe. The source sequences are independently channel-encoded, and then transmitted to the destination block-by-block via different time- or frequency-slots. The channels are assumed to be suffering from independent block Rayleigh fading.
