Summary: The rapid growth of state space in a two-dimensional (2D) random walk model imposes heavy computational load on mobility analysis of personal communication services (PCS) networks. This letter presents a novel random walk model with a compact state space by exploiting the symmetry of cellular patterns in a K-layer cluster of cells. The size of the state space is reduced to (K+1)/2(K/2+1)+1, with an asymptotic compression ratio of 12.
