Computationally scalable and accurate estimation, prediction, and simulation of wireless communication channels is critical to the development of more adaptive transceiver algorithms. Previously, the application of autoregressive moving average (ARMA) modeling to fading processes has been complicated by ill-conditioning and nonlinear parameter estimation. This correspondence presents a numerically stable and accurate method to synthesize ARMA rational approximations of correlated Rayleigh

Performance is compared to that of AR, inverse discrete Fourier transform, and sum of sinusoids techniques. Also, for the rst time, the nite-precision performance of different methods is compared. Discrete Fourier Transform (IDFT), Sum of Sinusoids (SOS), nite numerical precision. (SOS) [3]-[5], IDFT [6]-[7], AR [8], and ARMA schemes [9]-[11]. The limitations of SOS are outlined in [5] and were addressed, to some extent, in [3]. However the SOS model
