Coverage analysis of finite cellular networks: A stochastic geometry approach
Paper in proceedings, 2018

This paper develops a tractable modeling and analysis framework for finite cellular wireless networks using stochastic geometry. Defining finite homogeneous Poisson point processes to model the number and locations of access points in a confined region, we study the coverage probability for an arbitrarily-located reference user that is served by the closest access point. The distance distribution and the Laplace transform (LT) of the interference are derived. We also derive a closed-form lower bound on the LT of the interference. Our analyses reveal that a higher path loss exponent improves the coverage probability and that there is a location where the coverage probability is maximized.
