On appropriate models for characterizing hyper-rayleigh fading

  title={On appropriate models for characterizing hyper-rayleigh fading},
  author={Jeffrey Frolik},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications},
Recent work presented empirical data for which the small-scale fading statistics were more severe than Rayleigh; a phenomena deemed hyper-Rayleigh fading. This paper considers whether commonly utilized small-scale propagation models can be appropriately adapted to represent this class of fading. The work argues that the most meaningful model for the hyper- Rayleigh regime is based on a physical wave model (as opposed to stochastic); in particular, the TWDP model, where Deltaap1, holds the… CONTINUE READING
