In this paper, we address the optimal power allocation problem for minimizing capacity outage probability in multiple time-scale parallel fading channels. Extending ideas from [1], we derive the optimal power allocation scheme for parallel fading channels with fast Rayleigh fading, as a function of the slow fading gains. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the outage performance of this scheme for lognormal slow fading on two parallel channels.
