Taking the expectation with respect to th should have zero effect on
an expression that does not depend on th.
int r*(t) s(t) dt
does not depend on th, so you can treat it effectively like a constant
(for the purpose of expectation with respect to th!).

Sorry. Yes, that's exactly what i'm saying, in a convoluted way at
least.

Okay, I agree with you here, I was trying to argue for the equivalence
of the unknown channel phase (th) and the result of the expression
exp(-j*th) int r*(t) s(t) dt
with high SNR. I think we can move off this issue because i was really
flogging a dead four legged mammal.

Sorry to sound thick once again, but the p(th) = 1/2pi is because we
have a 1/2*pi'th probability of selecting a given phase from the
uniform distribution? Okay, you don't have to answer that, it's
correct when i think it through.

Now, are you saying that the expression above is
E[ exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) ] = Io( 2A * Re(int r*(t)
s(t) dt) ))
from my earlier post. Or are you saying that it is
E[ exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) ] = Io( 2A * abs(int r*(t)
s(t) dt) ))
??
What i'm getting at is that i don't understand what effect taking the
Expectation of the above has on the argument of int r*(t) s(t) dt ? If
any?
I'm not trying to stretch your patience on this one, so don't give up
on me and my niggling questions just yet!
Thanks

I can't see that from what you've written.
So we have;
s(t) = sent signal
r(t) = received signal
r(t) = f( s(t), th ) + noise
i.e. the received signal is the sent signal modified somehow [f( . )]
by the phase th --- and corrupted by noise.
] {th} in my case, represents the unknown
] channel phase shift, which i'm assuming remains constant over the
] duration of my integral (int r*(t) exp(-j*th)* s(t) dt).
OK does this say that
r(t) = s(t) exp(j*th) + noise
??
] In other words, I'm integrating over the rx symbol duration shifted
] by the channel induced phase. If the phase shift of the channel is
] zero, and we have an impulse channel with relatively high SNR,
] then r(t) ~= s(t) (i.e. what we tx is approx same as what we rx)
] the phase will therefore cancel when i perform the matched filter
] receiver of ( int r*(t) s(t) dt).
If th is zero, then you'll have r(t) ~= s(t) where the "~" is the
additive noise. That still makes your integral:
int (s*(t) + n(t))s(t) dt = int |s(t)|^2 dt + int n*(t)s(t) dt
which won't have zero phase, though the expectation [mean] of it
will probably be zero, depending on s(t) and n(t).
] For the case of a nonzero channel phase shift, we simply perform the

Not at all. the phase {th} is one thing, the argument of
int r*(t) s(t) dt is another. For zero noise, the argument
of your integral will be zero, regardless of the value of {th}.

] ?
Well, if you're trying to find the mean value of this with respect to
th, then just write:
E[ exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) ] =
int exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) p_{th}(th) dth
where p_{th}(th) is the pdf of th. But p_{th}(th) = 1/(2*pi) so
E[ exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) ] =
int exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) 1/(2*pi) dth
which will bring you to the
E[ exp( 2A cos(th) Re(int r*(t) s(t) dt) ) ] = Io( ... )
expression of your previous post.

Peter,
Thanks again. When you write it out like that, it seems so straight
forward that i'm embarrassed to say that i've spent a couple of weeks
trying to understand what they had done!
One thing that still puzzles me though, is when you get to this stage
= exp( 2A cos(th) int Re{ r*(t) s(t) } dt )
and we assume a uniform phase {th}, does that mean that we really don't
care what the phase is (or in other words, we average over all possible
values of the phase), so therefore, we use the absolute value of abs (
int r*(t) s(t) ) instead of the Re{}? This effectively removes the
dependence on the phase.
This then gives us eqn3
= Io( 2A abs( int r*(t) s(t) ) )
Is my line of thinking correct? Or I should say, is my reasoning
correct?
