Cooperation in cellular networks has been recently suggested as a promising scheme to improve system performance. In this work, clusters are formed based on the Mutually Nearest Neighbour relation, which defines which stations cooperate in pair and which do not. When node positions follow a Poisson Point Process (PPP) the performance of the original clustering model can be approximated by another one, formed by the superposition of two PPPs (one for the singles and one for the pairs) equipped…

Analysis of Static Cellular Cooperation between Mutually Nearest Neighboring Nodes
A grouping method based on node proximity that can be applied to any type of cooperation in pairs of transmitting nodes, and shows coverage gains from different signal cooperation that can reach up to 15% compared to the standard noncooperative coverage.
Wireless node cooperation with resource availability constraints
This work considers an alternative grouping criterion based on a distance that considers both geographic proximity and available resources of the stations, and derives analytical formulas on the proportion of cooperative pairs or single stations and the expected sum interference from each of the groups.
On random sampling with nodes attraction: The case of Gauss-Poisson process
This paper analyzes sampling and reconstruction of finite-energy signals in Rd, with samples gathered in space according to a Gauss-Poisson point process (G-PPP), which has been recently proposed to model node spatial distribution with attraction.

Analyzing interference from static cellular cooperation using the Nearest Neighbour Model
This work proposes a grouping method based on proximity, a variation of the so called Nearest Neighbour Model, for the problem of base station cooperation where only singles and pairs of base stations are allowed to be formed.
A Stochastic Geometry Framework for Analyzing Pairwise-Cooperative Cellular Networks
Stochastic geometry is used to analyze cooperation models where the positions of base stations follow a Poisson point process distribution and where Voronoi cells define the planar areas associated with them, focused on a case of limited information based on Willems' encoding.
A 0–1 program to form minimum cost clusters in the downlink of cooperating base stations
This work highlights the combinatorial nature of the problem, exploits this to describe the system of users and base stations as a graph and formulate a pure 0-1 program, which suggests a cost optimal way to form clusters and assign user subsets to them.
Coordinated Multipoint Joint Transmission in Heterogeneous Networks
Numerical evaluations illustrate absolute gains in coverage probability for the general user and the worst case user compared with the noncooperative case and it is shown that no diversity gain is achieved using noncoherent joint transmission, whereas full diversity gain can be achieved at the receiver if the transmitting base stations have channel state information.
Interference Coordination: Random Clustering and Adaptive Limited Feedback
This paper model the base stations locations as a Poisson point process to provide a better analytical assessment of the performance of coordination and illustrates how this analysis can help solve network design problems such as identifying regions where coordination provides gains based on average cluster size, number of antennas, and number of feedback bits.
Success probabilities in Gauss-Poisson networks with and without cooperation
The GPP is proposed as a model for wireless networks that exhibit clustering behavior and the bounds, especially the upper bounds, provide good approximations for different operating regimes.
A Tractable Model for Noncoherent Joint-Transmission Base Station Cooperation
A tractable model for analyzing noncoherent joint-transmission base station (BS) cooperation is presented, taking into account the irregular BS deployment typically encountered in practice, and the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) distribution with cooperation is precisely characterized in a generality-preserving form.
A Tractable Approach to Coverage and Rate in Cellular Networks
The proposed model is pessimistic (a lower bound on coverage) whereas the grid model is optimistic, and that both are about equally accurate, and the proposed model may better capture the increasingly opportunistic and dense placement of base stations in future networks.
Multi-Cell MIMO Cooperative Networks: A New Look at Interference
An overview of the theory and currently known techniques for multi-cell MIMO (multiple input multiple output) cooperation in wireless networks is presented and a few promising and quite fundamental research avenues are also suggested.

The presented framework consisting of the mathematical representations of SINR characteristics with respect to the factorial moment measures holds for the whole domain of SinR, and is amenable to considerable model extension.
