Abstract

In this paper, we initially consider the product of two independent and non-identically distributed κ-μ variates, and obtain its probability density function (PDF) in novel analytical form. Following from this, the PDF for the κ-μ/κ-μ composite fading model is then deduced. Monte-Carlo simulations are performed to verify the derived results. It is worth highlighting that both sets of expressions can be reduced to a number of double and composite fading scenarios such as the double Rice, double Nakagami-m, κ-μ/Nakagami-m, and Rice/Nakagami-m. Finally, we illustrate the usefulness of the obtained formulations by characterizing the shadowed fading encountered in body area networks, device-to-device and vehicle-to-vehicle communication channels. To this end, it is shown that the κ-μ/κ-μ composite fading model provides an excellent fit to the measurement data.
