A number of new results aiming at facilitating the use of the \$\textbackslash{}alpha \$ - \$\textbackslash{}eta \$ - \$\textbackslash{}kappa \$ - \$\textbackslash{}mu \$ fading model are presented. These results include: 1) fast convergent, with no recursions, series representations for the envelope probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF); 2) higher order moments of the envelope; 3) moment generating function (MGF) of the envelope; 4) asymptotic behavior of the envelope PDF and also of the envelope CDF; 5) a procedure for parameter estimation; 6) new closed-form expressions for particular cases of the envelope distribution; 7) new mathematical identity for the generalized Laguerre polynomial and the generalized hypergeometric function; and 8) approximate, but tight, series representation for the phase PDF. As application examples, the following are given: 1) outage probability; 2) outage capacity; 3) amount of fading; and 4) bit error rate, for which the asymptotic behavior is also presented. (AU)
