We introduce the {\alpha}-{\kappa}-{\mu} shadowed ({\alpha}-KMS) fading distribution as a natural generalization of the versatile {\alpha}-{\kappa}-{\mu} and {\alpha}-{\eta}-{\mu} distributions. The {\alpha}-KMS fading distribution unifies a wide set of fading distributions, as it includes the {\alpha}-{\kappa}-{\mu}, {\alpha}- {\eta}-{\mu}, {\alpha}-{\mu}, Weibull, {\kappa}-{\mu} shadowed, Rician shadowed, {\kappa}-{\mu} and {\eta}- {\mu} distributions as special cases, together with classical models like Rice, Nakagami-m, Hoyt, Rayleigh and one-sided Gaussian... Notably, the {\alpha}-KMS distribution reduces to a finite mixture of {\alpha}-{\mu} distributions when the fading parameters {\mu} and m take positive integer values, so that performance analysis over {\alpha}-KMS fading channels can be tackled by leveraging previous (existing) results in the literature for the simpler {\alpha}-{\mu} case. As application examples, important performance metrics like the outage probability and average channel capacity are analyzed. read more
