Conventionally fading analysis of wireless LAN or MAN means small scale fading i.e. wide fluctuation of received signal with small variation of time and distance. In analysis of fading channel, the authors consider the received signal in power, voltage or SNR as a random variable then statistical probability density function (pdf) like Rayleigh, Rician or Nakagami-m is used to get the probability of different phenomena. Most of the pdf is governed by two parameters: mean and variance of the random variable.
