This paper investigates the interference statistics and system performance of a finite multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) ad hoc network. A finite network contains a finite number of nodes in a finite region. For such a network, the binomial point process, rather than the ubiquitously employed Poisson point process, is adopted to characterize the spatial node distribution. Reception techniques such as the maximal ratio combining (MRC) and zero forcing (ZF) are employed at the receiver, around which a guard zone is deployed. Either spatial multiplexing or antenna selection is employed at the transmitter side, depending on the availability of feedback. The moment generating functions of the aggregate interference power are first derived, based on which the moments of interference and the outage probability of a test link are obtained. It is shown that the full diversity provided by the channel can be achieved by single-stream transmission, including transmit antenna selection. A network performance measure, i.e., the average network throughput, is also analyzed. Simulations are provided to complement the analysis.
