Statistical theory plays an important role in channel modeling which in turn can be applied in design and performance evaluation of various communication systems. The design and analysis of cascade fading models have been an active area of interest in recent years due to its application in numerous real world scenarios such as keyhole channel and multi-hop communication system. These cascade fading models are developed by the product of independent but not necessarily identically distributed random variables. Many researchers are currently working in this area and new cascade fading models have been suggested recently in the literature.
