Interference Alignment Bibliography

This page is meant to be a semi-exhaustive resource list on interference alignment, summarizing all main results shown thus far, and categorized by the different angles to concept of interference alignment has been viewed from. The bibliography focuses on interference alignment in wireless systems and thus does not include work on alignment in storage codes, network coding, or other potential applications. To help the interested reader in following IA research over time,  older articles generally appear first.

Note: Most conference papers with a journal version have been excluded. Therefore some work may have appeared earlier than the date of the publication listed.
