Frequency reuse (FR) has been widely deployed to achieve increased throughput and interference mitigation. Different FR schemes can prove to be efficient under different conditions and parameters. This paper formulates a generic mathematical model which can be used to obtain an FR scheme that can be tailored according to our requirements. The paper proposes a fuzzy set theory based generic mathematical model for deriving various Soft Fractional FR (SFFR) schemes. The derived schemes are evaluated using various parameters such as average throughput, spectral and power efficiency. To the best of our knowledge, the use of fuzzy set theory for deriving different SFFR schemes is the first effort that can be found in the literature. The analysis provided in the paper discovers an optimal SFFR scheme which provides higher spectral efficiency and throughput. Our proposed scheme, at FR =1.35, improves the power efficiency (8.68 Watts/(bps/Hz)) by staggering 21% and 57% as compared to FR=1 (11 Watts/(bps/Hz)) and FR=3 (20 Watts/(bps/Hz)), respectively.
