We consider the problem of modelling a randomly time-varying frequency-selective fading channel as a finite-state Markov channel (FSMC). For a fading channel with two correlated taps and given statistical parameters, the accuracy of an FSMC is assessed by comparing its information rate, when the receiver has ideal channel-state information, to that of the original continuous-valued channel. We show that in order to construct an FSMC with a given desired accuracy, fewer states are required if...[Show more]
