We introduce a new methodology for modeling and analyzing downlink cellular networks, where the Base Stations (BSs) constitute a motion-invariant Point Process (PP) that exhibits some degree of interactions among the points, e.g., spatial inhibition (repulsion) or spatial aggregation (clustering). The proposed approach is based on the theory of Inhomogeneous Poisson PPs (I-PPPs) and is referred to as Inhomogeneous Double Thinning (IDT) approach. The proposed approach consists of approximating a motion-invariant PP with an equivalent PP that is made of the superposition of two conditionally independent IPPPs. The inhomogeneities are mathematically modeled through two distance-dependent thinning functions and a tractable expression of the coverage probability is obtained.
