This paper presents a detailed study concerning the fading correlation functions of a circular array compared to a linear array, considering probability density functions (pdf’s) related to the azimuthal arrival angle. It is considered that signals that reach each element of the array arrive respectively with uniform, Gaussian and cosine-shaped distributions. Mathematical and numerical results for these configurations are presented.
