On the probability density function of the product of Rayleigh distributed random variables
Widanagamage, Anushka, Jayalath, Dhammika, & Chin, Yiyong (2012) On the probability density function of the product of Rayleigh distributed random variables. In Zepernick, Hans-Jürgen (Ed.) 6th International Conference on Signal Processing and Communication Systems, ICSPCS2012, IEEE, Gold Coast.
In this paper we investigate the distribution of the product of Rayleigh distributed random variables. Considering the Mellin-Barnes inversion formula and using the saddle point approach we obtain an upper bound for the product distribution. The accuracy of this tail-approximation increases as the number of random variables in the product increase.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
