I am doing a project related to the resource allocation in femocell. I am also facing this issue and your thread was very helpful for me, so thank you for that.
I wanted to ask you what exactly you did in your project ? so if any part is common I can reffer to your code of matlab.
If you are intersted in helping please let me know on
Kind Regards,

You need to generate points which have random angles smaller or equal to 2*pi and random radius smaller or equal to the circle radius, here is the code:
n=100; % number of points that you want
center = [1 ,2]; % center coordinates of the circle [x0,y0]
radius = 10; % radius of the circle
angle = 2*pi*rand(n,1);
r = radius*sqrt(rand(n,1));
X = r.*cos(angle)+ center(1);
Y = r.*sin(angle)+ center(2);

I have an extra question added to the solution as to how to repeat this 1000 times and plot a randomly selected single instance on the graph
