The literature typically uses the Nakagami distribution to describe the
fading of the amplitude of a signal. Since we have a network simulator,
were we have packets instead of signals, we do not look at the
amplitude, but at the energy of the signal, which you typically get by
taking the amplitude to the square. As such, the square root can be
"saved" in the calculation.
I hope that clarifies it.
