Expected Logarithm of a Noncentral Chi-Square Random Variable

A small but useful result in my thesis concerns the exprected logarithm of a noncentral chi-square random variable. This result can also be found on a separate website.


  • Equation (6.302) should read: (wrong factor)

    4\pi^2 should be replaced by 1

  • Equation (8.48) should read: (wrong font)

    wrong font: all h should be random variables, not random matrices

  • Remark 8.9: This remark is wrong, since in the situation of non-regular fading knowing the past will give precise knowledge of the present.
