General Fading Distributions
This paper presents two general fading distributions - the kappa-mu Distribution and the eta-mu Distribution. The kappa-mu Distribution includes the Rice and the Nakagami-m distributions as special cases. The eta-mu Distribution includes the Hoyt and the Nakagami-m distributions as special cases. Therefore, in both fading distributions, the One-Sided Gaussian and the Rayleigh distributions also constitute special cases and the Lognormal distribution may be well-approximated. Preliminary results show that these new distributions provide a very good fitting to experimental data.
