    Interference graphs are used for performance analysis of multiprocessor interconnection networks. In order to model blocked transmissions, nodes can have three states: idle, active or blocked. The resulting steady state probability distribution has a non-product form. Macro states are introduced to calculate performance measures, and the corresponding macro state probability distribution is approximated by a special type of fixed point iteration: the macro approximation, which is very efficient for pointsymmetric interference graphs.
