In this paper, in order to lay the goundwork for further analysis of mobile radio systems, a random selection of mobile locations is assumed, and the cdf of the link distances is found for two simple but fundamental scenarios: (1) a rectangular deployment area in which mobiles are uniformly distributed and (2) a deployment in which the x and y coordinates of the mobile locations have Gaussian distributions.

We note that although the derivation here is based on the approach to the Gaussian distribution on the basis of the central limit theorem, the same type Edgeworth expansion can also be found in the context of nonlinear evolution of density fluctuations starting from random Gaussian linear fluctuations.
Empirical analysis suggests that the multivariate Gaussian distribution sometimes fails to capture the kurtosis of financial asset returns.
Using data obtained from the wavelet analysis derived in the previous step we could obtain statistical parameters necessary for fitting the probability density function related to data (for Gaussian distribution just the mean and variance are necessary to estimate).
