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.

Thanks!
