Abstract

We derive closed-form expressions for the ergodic capacity and symbol error rate (SER) of MIMO beamforming with maximum ratio combining (MRC) receivers in uncorrelated and semi-correlated Rayleigh channels. Our results are exact, finite expressions, applying for arbitrary numbers of antennas, and all SNRs. Based on the analytical results, we examine the effect of spatial correlation on the capacity and SER.
