Abstract

This paper presents new envelope probability density functions (pdfs) that describe small-scale, local area fading experienced by narrow-band wireless receivers. The paper also develops novel pdfs that describe the local area fading of two specular multipath components in the presence of other diffusely propagating waves. These pdfs are studied in the context of classical fading pdfs such as the Rayleigh, Rician, and other distributions.
