Rician $K$-Factor-Based Analysis of XLOS Service Probability in 5G Outdoor Ultra-Dense Networks

1 code implementation22 Apr 2018 Hatim Chergui, Mustapha Benjillali, Mohamed-Slim Alouini

In this report, we introduce the concept of Rician $K$-factor-based radio resource and mobility management for fifth generation (5G) ultra-dense networks (UDN), where the information on the gradual visibility between the new radio node B (gNB) and the user equipment (UE)---dubbed X-line-of-sight (XLOS)---would be required.

A Large Dimensional Study of Regularized Discriminant Analysis Classifiers

1 code implementation1 Nov 2017 Khalil Elkhalil, Abla Kammoun, Romain Couillet, Tareq Y. Al-Naffouri, Mohamed-Slim Alouini

This article carries out a large dimensional analysis of standard regularized discriminant analysis classifiers designed on the assumption that data arise from a Gaussian mixture model with different means and covariances.


New Results on the Sum of Gamma Random Variates With Application to the Performance of Wireless Communication Systems over Nakagami-m Fading Channels

3 code implementations12 Feb 2012 Imran Shafique Ansari, Ferkan Yilmaz, Mohamed-Slim Alouini, Oğuz Kucur

The probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function of the sum of L independent but not necessarily identically distributed Gamma variates, applicable to the output statistics of maximal ratio combining (MRC) receiver operating over Nakagami-m fading channels or in other words to the statistical analysis of the scenario where the sum of squared Nakagami-m distributions are user-of-interest, is presented in closed-form in terms of well-known Meijer's G function and easily computable Fox's H-bar function for integer valued and non-integer valued m fading parameters.
