Rayleigh fading with frequency selective fading channel

I Read in one reference that, the Rayleigh distribution is commonly used to describe the statistical time varying nature of the received envelope of a flat fading signal, or the envelope of an ...

Flat fading criterion of OFDM subcarrier spacing

I have always thought that the OFDM subcarrier spacing $\Delta f$ is chosen such that not too small because Doppler spread can destroy subcarrier orthogonality not too large to avoid Cyclic Prefix (...

Why do we express complex noise as Gaussian distributed while the channel is Rayleigh distributed?

I have a confusion regarding the distribution of noise and channel fading. As we know channel fading is usually modeled with Rayleigh fading since it has Gaussian distributed real and imaginary ...

Matlab: Correct method of generating Rayleigh fading channel

A Rayleigh flat fading channel has 1 tap and so there will be no intersymbol interference. if N= 1000; Then, h=(1/sqrt(2))*(randn(N,1)+1i*randn(N,1)); will ...

How do random processes add in Rayleigh fading to get a Guassian random process?

I was studying Rayleigh channels from Wireless Communications, Second Edition by Andreas F. Molisch. The book states that by adding different in-phase and quadrature components multipath components ...

Meaning: channel unknown and known at the transmiiter

What does "channel unknown" and "known at the transmitter" mean? In books about signal processing, it has always mentioned it if capacity or transmission (estimation) is discussed. I can't understand ...

bit reversed order of FFT matrix for channel estimation

Although the question seems similar to this one HERE, but what I want to ask about is little bit different. Assume we have a signal $X$ whose length is $N$x$1$, we convert that signal into time ...

Log-normal shadowing and mean power

Let's assume I'm receiving a signal with power measured in dBm shadowed according to the normal distribution, i.e. $P_{\text{dBm}} \sim N(0,1) $. If there is also a normally distributed noise power $...
