This letter provides a stochastic geometry (SG)-based coverage probability (CP) analysis of an indoor terahertz (THz) downlink assisted by a single reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) panel. Specifically, multiple access points (AP) deployed on the ceiling of a hall (each equipped with multiple antennas) need to serve multiple user equipment (UE) nodes. Due to the presence of blockages, a typical UE may either get served via a direct link, the RIS, or both links (the composite link). The locations of the APs and blockages are modeled as Poisson point processes (PPP), and the SG framework is utilized to compute the CP, at a reference UE for all three scenarios. Monte-Carlo simulation results validate our theoretical analysis.
