The fading number of a noncoherent two-user Rician fading channel is
derived. The fading number is the second term in the high-SNR
expansion of the sum-rate capacity of this multiple-access channel. It
is shown that the fading number is identical to the fading number of
the single-user Rician fading channel that is obtained when the user
seeing the worse channel is switched off.
Channel capacity, fading number, flat fading, high signal-to-noise
ratio (SNR), multiple-access.
