Executive Summary

This paper analyzes the outage performance in finite wireless networks. Unlike most prior works, which either assumed a specific network shape or considered a special location of the reference receiver, the authors propose two general frameworks for analytically computing the outage probability at any arbitrary location of an arbitrarily-shaped finite wireless network: a moment generating function-based framework which is based on the numerical inversion of the Laplace transforms of probability distribution and a reference link power gain-based framework which exploits the distribution of the power gain between the reference transmitter and receiver. The boundary effects are accurately accounted for using the exact probability distribution function of the distance of a random node from the reference receiver in finite networks.
