Summary: 
The feasibility condition of interference alignment (IA) for multiple-input multiple-output two-way interference channel is studied in this paper. A necessary condition and a sufficient condition on the IA feasibility are established and the sum degrees of freedom (DoF) for a broad class of network topologies is characterized. The numerical results demonstrate that two-way operation with appropriate IA is able to achieve larger sum DoF than the conventional one-way operation.
