Abstract

The Weibull distribution is a flexible statistical model for describing multipath fading channels in both indoor and out- door radio propagation environments. A new closed-form expres- sion is derived for the moment generating function of the Weibull distribution, valid when its fading parameter assumes integer val- ues. The performance of digital linear modulations operating on Weibull channels is studied. Expressions for the signal outage and average symbol error rate are derived for single-channel reception and multi-channel diversity reception operating onWeibull fading channels
