 Abstract
In this paper, we present a new and simple derivation of the Craig representation for the two-dimensional (2-D) Gaussian Q-function in the viewpoint of geometry. The geometric derivation also leads to an alternative Craig form for the 2-D Gaussian Q-function. The derived Craig form is newly obtained from the geometry of two wedge-shaped regions generated by the rotation of Cartesian coordinates over two correlated Gaussian noises. The presented Craig form can play a important role in computing the probability represented by the 2-D Gaussian Q-function.
