Light Fading ( )

Very strong dominant component

Rician PDF Gaussian PDF d

 

 

Severe Fading: Rayleigh Fading

Direct line-of-sight component is small (C  0,  0).

The variances of z and x are equal to local-mean power

 

PDF of amplitude r is Rayleigh

 

The instantaneous power p (p  =  1/2r =  1/2z1/2x2) is exponential
