© 1967-2012 IEEE. User distribution in ultradense networks (UDNs) plays a crucial role in affecting the performance of UDNs due to the essential coupling between the traffic and the service provided by the networks. Existing studies are mostly based on the assumption that users are uniformly distributed in space. The nonuniform user distribution has not been widely considered despite that it is much closer to the real scenario. In this paper, radiation and absorbing model (R&A model) is first adopted to analyze the impact of the nonuniformly distributed users on the performance of 5G UDNs. Based on the R&A model and queueing network theory, the stationary user density in each hot area is investigated. Furthermore, the coverage probability, network throughput, and energy efficiency are derived based on the proposed theoretical model. Compared with the uniformly distributed assumption, it is shown that nonuniform user distribution has a significant impact on the performance of UDNs.
