Starting from a Gaussian distribution of scatterers around a mobile station, expressions are provided for the probability density function (PDF) in the angle of arrival, the power azimuth spectrum, the PDF in the time of arrival, and the time delay spectrum, all as seen from a base station. Expressions are also provided for some of the quantities of practical interest such as the root-mean-square (RMS) angular spread, the RMS delay spread, and the spatial cross-correlation function. Results for the Gaussian scatter density model are compared with those for the circular scattering model and the elliptical scattering model as well as with experimental results available for outdoor and indoor environments. Comparison is shown for the PDFs as well as for the power spectra in angle and delay. It is shown that the present model, in contrast to the previous models, produces results that closely agree with experimental results. With an appropriate choice of the standard deviation of the scattering region, the Gaussian density model can be made suitable both for environments with very small angular spreads as well as those with very large angular spreads. Consequently, the results provided in the paper are applicable to both macrocellular as well as picocellular environments
