Abstract

This paper presents new envelope PDF's (probability density functions) that describe small-scale, local area fading experienced by narrowband wireless receivers. The paper develops novel PDF's that describe the local area fading of two coherent multipath components in the presence of other diffuse propagating waves. Analytical expressions, graphical analysis, and applicability of the PDF's are presented. These new PDF's appear to be general equations for modeling local area multipath fading since they contain Rayleigh and Ridan PDF's as special cases, and also model local area fading that often defies characterization by classical PDF's.
