References for Lectures 3 and 4

    The main reference for these lectures is Chapter 2 in Tse and Viswanath.
    Wireless Channel models are also extensively covered in the ECE 380 text:
      T. Rappaport, Wireless Communications - Principles and Practice, 2nd Ed., Prentice Hall 2002.
    Clarke presented his model for a Rayleigh fading channel in:
      R. Clarke, "A Statistical Theory of Mobile Radio Reception," Bell Systems Technical Journal, Vol. 47, 1968.
    The use of finite-state Markov models for fading channels is discussed in:
      H. Wang and N. Moayeri, "Finite-state Markov channel - A useful model for radio communication, " IEEE Trans. on Vehic. Technology, Feb. 1995.
    Finite state channel models have been studied for many years - see for example Chapter 4.6 in:
      R. Gallager, "Information Theory and Reliable Communication," Wiley, 1968.
    The block-fading channel model was introduced in
      L. Ozarow, S. Shamai and A. Wyner, "Information theoretic considerations for cellular mobile radio," IEEE Trans. on Vehic. Technol., vol. 43, May 1994.
    A comprehensive survey of fading channel models as well as many of the other topics that we will discuss can be found in:
      E. Biglieri, et. al, "Fading Channels: Information Theoretic and Communications Aspects," IEEE Trans. on Information Theory, Vol. 44, Oct. 1998.
