Statistical Analysis of Multipath Fading Channels Using Generalizations of Shot-Noise

Document Type


Publication Date



This paper provides a connection between the shot-noise analysis of Rice and the statistical analysis of multipath fading wireless channels when the received signals are a low-pass signal and a bandpass signal. Under certain conditions, explicit expressions are obtained for autocorrelation functions, power spectral densities, and moment-generating functions. In addition, a central limit theorem is derived identifying the mean and covariance of the received signals, which is a generalization of Campbell_s theorem. The results are easily applicable to transmitted signals which are random and to CDMA signals.
