Hello,
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 mahimnat27@gmail.com
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]
angle = 2*pi*rand(n,1);
X = r.*cos(angle)+ center(1);
Y = r.*sin(angle)+ center(2);
plot(X,Y,'.k')

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
