Current and future wireless communication systems require higher spectral usage due to increasing demand in user data rates. One of the principal techniques for efficient spectral usage is to implement a dense spatial reuse of the available radio spectrum. This causes severe co-channel interference, which limits the system performance. With increasing spatial reuse of the radio spectrum, co-channel interference is becoming the dominant noise source and may severely degrade the communication performance of wireless transceivers. In this paper, the authors consider the problem of statistical-physical modeling of co-channel interference. Statistical modeling of interference is a useful tool to analyze the outage probabilities in wireless networks and to design interference-aware transceivers.
