Wireless communications in the terahertz (THz) frequency band, 0.1-10THz, promises a rapid increase of channel capacity in next- generation networks. However, the advantages of this technology depend not only on the single link performance, but also on the possibility of several THz links to coexist in the same area. Thus, the efficiency of spatial channel reuse has to be studied. Due to the presence of specific effects in the THz band, such as molecular absorption and molecular noise, existing performance evaluation techniques are not straightforwardly applicable. In this paper, the approach for network-level analysis of THz wireless communications is proposed. This approach is based on the tools of stochastic geometry and takes into account the specific signal propagation features of the THz frequency band. The presented technique is used to derive the distribution of SINR and spectral efficiency as well as to estimate the optimal distance between receiving nodes and maximize the area capacity.
