Sum and Difference of Two Squared Correlated Nakagami Variates in Connection With the McKay Distribution

IEEE Transactions on Communications, 2004

Sum and Difference of Two Squared Correlated Nakagami Variates in Connection With the McKay Distribution General formulas for the probability density function of the sum and the difference of two correlated, but not necessarily identically distributed, squared Nakagami variates (or equivalently, gamma variates) are derived. These expressions are shown to be in the form of the McKay “Bessel function” distributions. ...


Performance evaluations of adaptive modulation over composite Nakagami-lognormal fading channels

2009 15th Asia-Pacific Conference on Communications, 2009

The closed form expression for the sum of composite Nakagami-lognormal distributions is hard to obtain. Numerical integration approximation to the sum distribution provides sufficient accuracy but is too complicated to apply into further analysis. In this paper we investigate a simple analysis approach based on the least square method, which achieves the accuracy of numerical integration and has a simple ...


Cooperative Spectrum Sensing over Non-Identical Nakagami Fading Channels

2011 IEEE 73rd Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC Spring), 2011

Previous works in cooperative spectrum sensing assumed that the channels for sensing and reporting are independent identically distributed (i.i.d). A more practical and appropriate assumption, however, should be that the sensing channels and reporting channels are independent but not necessarily identically distributed (i.n.i.d). In this paper, we derive the false-alarm probability and the detection probability of cooperative spectrum sensing with ...

  • Sum and Difference of Two Squared Correlated Nakagami Variates in Connection With the McKay Distribution

    Sum and Difference of Two Squared Correlated Nakagami Variates in Connection With the McKay Distribution General formulas for the probability density function of the sum and the difference of two correlated, but not necessarily identically distributed, squared Nakagami variates (or equivalently, gamma variates) are derived. These expressions are shown to be in the form of the McKay “Bessel function” distributions. In addition, formulas for the moments of these distributions, in terms of Gauss' hypergeometric function, are provided. An application of these new results, relevant to the calculation of outage probability in the presence of self-interference, is finally discussed.

  • Performance evaluations of adaptive modulation over composite Nakagami-lognormal fading channels

    The closed form expression for the sum of composite Nakagami-lognormal distributions is hard to obtain. Numerical integration approximation to the sum distribution provides sufficient accuracy but is too complicated to apply into further analysis. In this paper we investigate a simple analysis approach based on the least square method, which achieves the accuracy of numerical integration and has a simple expression. The approximation formula is specified and optimal values of coefficients are tabulated for reference. We further use the proposed analysis approach in analyzing the performance of adaptive transmission systems over MRC combined Nakagami-lognormal channels. Simple and closed form expressions for throughput and outage probability are also derived. Impact of different parameters of Nakagami-lognormal channels on the adaptive transmission system is discussed at the end.

  • Cooperative Spectrum Sensing over Non-Identical Nakagami Fading Channels

    Previous works in cooperative spectrum sensing assumed that the channels for sensing and reporting are independent identically distributed (i.i.d). A more practical and appropriate assumption, however, should be that the sensing channels and reporting channels are independent but not necessarily identically distributed (i.n.i.d). In this paper, we derive the false-alarm probability and the detection probability of cooperative spectrum sensing with energy fusion over i.n.i.d Nakagami fading channels. Selected numerical results show that cooperative spectrum sensing still gives considerably better performance results even over i.n.i.d fading channels.

  • Speckle suppression by adaptive nonlinear filtering

    Using a good statistical model of speckle formation is important for designing an adaptive filter for speckle reduction in ultrasound B-scan images. Most clinical ultrasound imaging systems use nonlinear logarithmic functions to reduce the dynamic range of the input echo signal and emphasize objects with weak back scatter. The statistics of log-compressed images for the Nakagami distribution are used for designing an adaptive nonlinear filter for the purpose of speckle reduction. We processed two original ultrasound images of kidney and liver to demonstrate the efficiency of the designed filter.

  • A Bayesian estimator for correlation parameters of the multivariate nakagami-m distribution

    In this report, we presented a novel Bayesian estimator for the correlation parameters of the multivariate Nakagami-m distributions. The proposed estimator has a two-stage structure. First, a generalized Gibbs sampler - the group-based sampler is constructed to analyze the posterior distributions of the parameters, which leads to a lower time complexity compared to the traditional Gibbs sampler. Second, a multi-proposal Metropolis-Hastings algorithm is implemented within the group-based sampler. In the Metropolis- Hastings stage, estimation values are obtained by computing the weighted mean of both accepted and rejected states. It makes the estimation variance lower compared to the traditional methods using only the accepted states. Numerical simulation results demonstrate that our new estimator is practically unbiased except some points and it offers a relatively small estimation variance.

  • The analysis of integral characteristics of received signal envelope in wireless mobile communications

    This paper presents some results obtained in PhD thesis entitled “A contribution to the analysis of integral characteristics of received signal envelope in wireless communications”. For analytical and numerical evaluation of system performance, the probability density functions (pdf) describing the statistical behavior of the multipath fading envelope, are analyzed like particular solutions of corresponding differential equation, while the existence of singular solution is considered and analyzed under different conditions. It is shown that the envelope of probability density function curves family is a straight line, for all values of varying parameters, for Rayleigh, Weibull and Nakagami fading channel model. This new expression can be used during mobile system designing.

  • Moment-based estimation of the Nakagami-m fading parameter

    Moment-based estimation of the Nakagami-m (1960) fading parameter is considered for both noiseless and noisy environments. For a noiseless environment, a family of new estimators, which uses lower order fractional sample moments, is shown to achieve better performance than the best known moment-based estimator and to achieve comparable performance to an approximate maximum-likelihood estimator. A new estimator is proposed for noisy environments and its performance is compared with an estimator derived for low noise environments.

  • Performance of Turbo-Codes on Nakagami Flat Fading (Radio) Transmission Channels

    In this paper, we analyze the performance in terms of bit error rate and frame error rate of a turbo-coded system over Nakagami frequency-nonselective (flat) fading multipaths channels. First, an efficient method to generate uncorrelated Nakagami-m fading samples is proposed. Through the parameter m, the Nakagami distribution accurately model signal fading conditions that range from severe to moderate. The primary justification for the use of the Nakagami-m distribution is its good fit to empirical fading data. Second, we modify calculation of the channel log likelihood ratios at the input of the decoder in order to take into account the Nakagami distribution of the channel fading. The simulation results show that turbo-codes provide tremendous gain over uncoded transmission in presence of Nakagami fading

  • An Analytically Tractable Approximation for the Gaussian Q-Function

    In this letter we propose an approximation for the Gaussian Q-function that enables simpler evaluation of important communication system performance metrics. The approximation enables derivation of closed-form expressions for metrics such as average symbol, bit and block error probabilities which are known to be analytically involved as they require computation of the expectation of Q-function and its integer powers, for any m of Nakagami-m fading. The tightness of the approximation is verified by simulations. The usefulness of the approximation is demonstrated by obtaining a simple closed form expression for the average symbol error probability of differentially encoded QPSK in Nakagami-m fading.

  • Analysis of SIR for spectrum sharing system with OSTBC in Nakagami fading

    This paper analyzes spectrum sharing cognitive radio system where orthogonal space time block codes (OSTBCs) are applied at the secondary user (SU) link. The influence of primary user's (PU) interference on the performances of the SU are studied in Nakagami fading environment. We derive exact closed-form expressions for probability density function and moments of the SIR (signal- to-interference ratio) of SU. Ergodic capacity is evaluated for different system parameters. The accuracy of the analytical expressions is verified using Monte Carlo simulation method.
