This paper presents a comparison between the outage capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels predicted by Kronecker and Muller models as a function of the number of scatterers, transmit- and receive antennas. The results show that the channel capacity predictions by the Muller model are higher than those by the Kronecker model. This is because the Miller model is based on single scattering between transmit and receive antenna arrays, while the Kronecker model considers only the double-scattering.
