Capacity of Nakagami Multipath Fading Channels

  title={Capacity of Nakagami Multipath Fading Channels},
  author={Mohamed-Slim Alouini and Andrea GoldsmithDepartment},
We study the capacity of Nakagami multipath fading (NMF) channels with an average power constraint for three power and rate adaptation policies. We obtain closed-form solutions for NMF channel capacity (with and without diversity) for each power and rate adaptation strategy, and compare them with the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel capacity. The capacity of a NMF channel is always smaller than the capacity of an AWGN channel. Moreover , the capacities converge to the AWGN channel… CONTINUE READING
