Abstract

The η-μ / inverse gamma and κ-μ / inverse gamma distributions were recently introduced as particularly flexible and tractable composite fading models that provide accurate characterization of multipath and shadowing effects, which are encountered simultaneously during wireless transmission in emerging communication scenarios such as off-body, cellular and vehicular-to-vehicular communications. The present contribution analyzes the symbol error rate performance of digital communications over these fading channels. To this end, we derive novel analytic expressions for the symbol error rate of multiple amplitude based modulated systems under these fading conditions, which are subsequently used in the analysis of the corresponding system performance. In this context, numerous insights are developed on the effect of different fading conditions on the corresponding error rate, which are expected to be useful in the design of timely and demanding wireless technologies such as wearable, cellular and vehicular communication systems.
