This article shows a simple mathematical treatment to model and simulate the local scatters channel using a Gaussian probability density for arrival angle distributions, time correlation functions and power spectral density. The correlation envelope is related to the channel parameters and is used in many applications where second order statistics are needed. The channel temporal analysis uses the WSS-US (Wide-Sense Stationary and Uncorrelated Scattering) model for modeling the directional components, considering parameters as angular spread, channel directional component and Doppler frequency.
