Abstract

Coverage probability is one of the most important metrics for evaluating the performance of wireless networks. However, the spatial stochastic models for which a computable expression of the coverage probability is available are restricted (such as the Poisson based or α-Ginibre based models). Furthermore, even if it is available, the practical numerical computation may be time-consuming (in the case of α-Ginibre based model). In this paper, we propose the application of Padé approximation to the coverage probability in the wireless network models based on general spatial stationary point processes. The required Maclaurin coefficients are expressed in terms of the moment measures of the point process, so that the approximants are expected to be available for a broader class of point processes. Through some numerical experiments for the cellular network model, we demonstrate that the Padé approximation is effectively applicable for evaluating the coverage probability.
