This paper is first in the open literature (to the authors' best knowledge) on wireless channel fading to derive the uplink received signal's fourth-order spatial-correlation coefficient function across a receiving sensor-array's aperture. This derivation is mathematically rigorous and is based on idealized geometric relationships among the mobile… CONTINUE READING
