dc.description.abstractDevelopment of accurate physical layer models is very important for generating realistic network simulation results. Significant effort has been put into setting up physical layer models for wireless channels that emulate the impact of the channel on the higher layers of the network. Setting up the models is especially difficult for a frequency selective channel. In this thesis the use of non-linear functions to convert the frequency selective channel to an equivalent flat fading channel is examined. The analytical expressions for the statistics of the equivalent flat fading process that are needed to set up the physical layer models are derived. These results are used to set up the physical layer model for the frequency selective channel. Extensive simulations are performed to verify the accuracy of the model against a detailed physical layer implementation. The statistics of the model and the actual channel are seen to match, validating the method of setting up the models.en
