Fading is the time-dependent variations in signal strength measured at a receiver, due to temporally evolving multipath scattering and interference. In our previous work we introduced a statistical fading model for the time-reversal invariant case by combining the predictions of random matrix theory with the random coupling model that includes system-specific properties such as the radiation impedance of the ports and short-orbit effects. In the high-loss limit this random matrix theory model reduced to the most common fading models in the wireless communication field. In this paper we discuss the theoretical model in more detail and extend it to the case of broken time-reversal invariance.
