Hello, Anyone knows how to generate random number base on the rician probability density function. The rician pdf is given by: f(r)=(r/sigma^2)*exp(1)^(-1*(r^2+A^2)/(2*sigma^2))*Io(r*A/sigma^2) where 2*sigma^2 is the average power in the scatter component of the fade, and Io(.) is the modified Bessel function of the first kind and zeroth order.
