The stochastic geometry is a powerful tool to model spatial network-level problems. One such application of the stochastic geometry is to model the interference in wireless communication networks. This chapter gives basics of the stochastic modelling of the interference in high-frequency wireless systems. The specific focus is on the sub-THz and THz communications (0.1–10 THz). These frequencies give opportunity to utilize very high bandwidths that open doors for ultra-high point-to-point systems. High path loss, molecular absorption loss, and very high loss through objects are among the peculiarities affecting the signal propagation. This chapter goes through the basic modelling of the interference level in +100 GHz wireless systems with directional antennas and various channel impairments.
