Nakagami-m probability density function in linear and logarithmic units

Nakagami-m probability density function in linear and logarithmic units

This virtual lab shows the probability density function (PDF) of the Nakagami-m distribution in both linear and logarithmic units. The Nakagami-m distribution has been extensively used to model the fast fading amplitude distribution in wireless communication due to its versatility and fitting experimental data. The objective is to analyze the dependence on the shape of the Nakagami-m PDF with the fading parameter and to show the approximation of the experimental PDF to the analytical PDF in both linear (received field strenght in uV/m) and logarithmic (received power in dBm) units. The experimental PDF has been calculated using the Monte Carlo simulation procedure. The analytical or theoretical PDF is obtained using the Nakagami-m PDF formula.
