Transmit antenna subset selection in spatial multiplexing systems is considered. In particular, selection algorithms aiming to minimise the error rate when linear detectors are used at the receiver are proposed. Previous work on antenna selection has considered capacity and post-processing SNR selection criteria. However, a geometrical interpretation of the decoding process which also permits development of a suboptimal algorithm that yields a considerable complexity reduction with only a small loss in performance, is considered.
