In this paper, error performance of a cooperative relay system using amplify and forward method is investigated when channels between source, relay and destination have cascaded Nakagami distribution. General pairwise error probability of the system is derived and effective and asymptotic diversity orders are investigated for some special cases. Bit error probability curves are obtained by computer simulations.
