Abstract

The Rayleigh-lognormal distribution, which has proved useful for modelling fading-shadowing wireless channels, has a complicated integral form. The authors have accurately approximated it by the K distribution. This distribution is simpler and thus more appropriate for analysis and design of wireless communication systems.
