We consider a wireless system with a full-duplex (FD) access point (AP) that transmits to a scheduled user in the downlink (DL) channel, while receiving data from an user in the uplink (UL) channel at the same time on the same frequency. In this system, loopback interference (LI) at the AP and inter user interference between the uplink (UL) user and downlink (DL) user can cause performance degradation. In order to characterize the effects of LI and inter user interference, we derive closed-form

In addition an asymptotic analysis that reveals insights into the system behavior and performance degradation is presented. Our results indicate that under certain conditions, FD transmissions yield performance gains over half-duplex (HD) mode of operation.
