In this paper, downlink outage probability for distributed antenna systems (DAS) in multicell environment is proposed, while based on maximum desired signal criterion, a single selection transmission scheme (SSTS) is proposed. Usually, adopting central limit theorem (CLT) method, the component of interference plus noise is considered as a fixed-variance Gaussian random variable in most papers. However, the aforementioned method does not reflect the effect of short-term fading on interference and its usage is in the constraints of restrictive conditions. To relax the constraints, non-central limit theorem (NCLT) is introduced, which treats the variance of interference plus noise as a changeable-variance random variable influenced by short-term fading. It is assumed that channels are independent identical Rayleigh fading with propagation path-loss, and the closed-form expression of outage probability for DAS is derived. Finally, simulation results demonstrate the validity of theoretical analysis.
