Interference coordination improves data rates and reduces outages in cellular networks. Accurately evaluating the gains of coordination, however, is contingent upon using a network topology that models realistic cellular deployments. In this paper, we model the base stations locations as a Poisson point process to provide a better analytical assessment of the performance of coordination. Since interference coordination is only feasible within clusters of limited size, we consider a random…

Performance of Network-Centric Clustering for Coordinated Joint Transmission with Irregular Cluster Topology
This work theoretically analyzes the performance of CoMP with both JT and interference nulling (IN) using stochastic geometry and derives the coverage probability and ergodic rate of network-centric clustering.
Coordinated beamforming with dynamic clustering: A stochastic geometry approach
This paper characterizes the performance of coordinated beamforming with dynamic clustering and forms the computation of the number of coordinated BSs that maximizes the spectral efficiency for a given fading coherence, making precise the intuition that the slower the fading, the more beneficial the coordination.
Performance analysis of multicell coordination in cellular wireless networks
An adaptive coordination scheme for energy-efficient resource allocation has been developed for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) cellular networks and offers insight into the resource allocation and scheduling problems within multicell coordination framework.
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.
Modeling Heterogeneous Network Interference Using Poisson Point Processes
This paper proposes to analyze downlink performance in a fixed-size cell, which is inscribed within a weighted Voronoi cell in a Poisson field of interferers, using recent applications of stochastic geometry to analyze cellular systems.
User-Centric Intercell Interference Nulling for Downlink Small Cell Networks
A novel interference coordination strategy, called user-centric intercell interferencenulling, is proposed for small cell networks, and it is shown that the proposed strategy outperforms other interference nulling methods.
User-centric intercell interference coordination in small cell networks
An accurate approximation for the successful transmission probability of a typical user is derived with the proposed interference coordination method, based on which the optimal IC range can be obtained.
Average Rate of Downlink Heterogeneous Cellular Networks over Generalized Fading Channels: A Stochastic Geometry Approach
An analytical framework to compute the average rate of downlink heterogeneous cellular networks is introduced, which avoids the computation of the Coverage Probability (Pcov) and needs only the Moment Generating Function (MGF) of the aggregate interference at the probe mobile terminal.
Energy Efficiency of Cross-Tier Base Station Cooperation in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
This paper considers BS cooperation in the downlink HetNets where BSs from different tiers within the respective cooperative clusters jointly transmit the same data to a typical user, and designs appropriate RSS thresholds, taking into account the trade-off between spatial average rate and energy efficiency.
User Mobility Analysis in Disjoint-Clustered Cooperative Wireless Networks
This work proposes a stochastic geometric model on user mobility, and uses it to derive a theoretical expression for the handoff rate experienced by an active user with arbitrary movement trajectory in disjoint-clustered cooperative wireless networks.


An Analytical Framework for Multi-Cell Cooperation via Stochastic Geometry and Large Deviations
Analytically, results confirm analytically that cluster-edge mobiles are the bottleneck for network coverage and provide a plausible analytic framework for more realistic analysis of other multi-cell techniques.
An Analytical Framework for Multicell Cooperation via Stochastic Geometry and Large Deviations
It is confirmed analytically that cluster-edge mobiles are the bottleneck for network coverage and provide a plausible analytic framework for more realistic analysis of other multicell techniques.
Coordinating multiple antenna cellular networks to achieve enormous spectral efficiency
It is observed that CCT mutes intercell interference enough, so that enormous spectral efficiency improvement associated with using multiple antennas in isolated communication links occurs as well for the base-to-user links in a cellular network.
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.
Linear Precoding in Cooperative MIMO Cellular Networks with Limited Coordination Clusters
In a cooperative multiple-antenna downlink cellular network, maximization of a concave function of user rates is considered. A new linear precoding technique called soft interference nulling (SIN) is
Local Base Station Cooperation Via Finite-Capacity Links for the Uplink of Linear Cellular Networks
This work studies a scenario where base stations are connected only if in adjacent cells, and via finite-capacity links, and sheds light on the impact of codebook information, decoding delay, and network planning on the performance of multicell decoding as enabled by local and finite- capacity backhaul links.
Stochastic analysis of spatial and opportunistic aloha
This paper analyzes a natural variant of Spatial Aloha that consists in replacing the coin tossing by an evaluation of the quality of the channel of each station to its receiver and a selection of the stations with good channels under fading conditions, and shows that when properly tuned, Opportunistic Aloha very significantly outperforms Sp spatial Aloha.
On the limitations of cooperation in wireless networks
It is shown that even perfect cooperation cannot in general change an interference-limited network to a noise-limited one, and the existence of a spectral efficiency upper bound that does not grow with P is shown.

Numerical results show that the network throughput achieve by interference nulling at the transmitter is comparable to that achieved by interference cancellation at the receiver.
On the capacity of MIMO broadcast channels with partial side information
This work proposes a scheme that constructs M random beams and that transmits information to the users with the highest signal-to-noise-plus-interference ratios (SINRs), which can be made available to the transmitter with very little feedback.
