The κ-µ / inverse gamma and η-µ / inverse gamma distributions constitute two of the most distinct composite fading models. The present work offers novel results on the achievable ergodic capacity over these composite multipath/shadowing conditions. The derived expressions are corroborated with respective simulation results and are shown to be useful in practical wireless scenarios in the context of device to device communications, such as off-body, and vehicle-to-vehicle communications.
