The log-normal probability distribution is commonly used in wireless communications to model the shadowing and, more recently, the small-scale fading for indoor ultra-wideband communications. In this paper, an accurate closed-form approximation of the ergodic capacity over log-normal fading channels is derived. This expression can be easily used to evaluate and compare the ergodic capacity of communication systems operating over log-normal fading channels.
