This chapter considers interference in a wireless communication network, caused by users that share the same propagation medium. Under the assumption that the interfering users are spatially Poisson distributed, and under a power-law propagation loss function, it has been shown in the past that the interference instantaneous amplitude at the receiver is a-stable distributed. Past work has not considered the second-order statistics of the interference, and has relied on the assumption that interference samples are independent. In this chapter, analytic expressions for the interference second-order statistics are provided, and it is shown that depending on the properties of the users’ holding times, the interference can be long-range dependent.
