Abstract

In this paper we study statistical methods for estimating the Rician K-factor when this parameter is small. A fiducial approach for making statistical inference on the K-factor is discussed. The approach requires a Monte Carlo method to compute the uncertainty of a K-factor estimate. Simulation and measurement studies are carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed procedure and compare it with some of the existing procedures. A procedure for assessing the adequacy of the estimation of the K-factor via quantile plots is presented.
