Spectrum sharing between wireless networks improves the usage efficiency of radio spectrums. This paper addresses spectrum sharing between a cellular uplink and a mobile ad hoc networks. These networks use either all uplink frequency subchannels or their disjoint subsets, called spectrum underlay and spectrum overlay, respectively. Given these methods, the capacity tradeoff between the coexisting networks is analyzed in terms of transmission capacity. For a network with Poisson distributed transmitters, this metric is defined as the maximum density of transmitters subject to an outage constraint for a given signal-to-interference ratio (SIR). Using stochastic geometry, the transmission-capacity tradeoff between the coexisting networks is derived, where both spectrum overlay and underlay as well as successive interference cancellation (SIC) are considered. In particular, for small target outage probability, the transmission capacities of the coexisting networks are proved to satisfy a linear equation. Its coefficients depend on the spectrum sharing method and whether SIC is applied. This linear equation shows that spectrum overlay is more efficient than spectrum underlay.
