This paper analyzes the impact of receive fading correlation on the error performance of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system that employs a zero-forcing detection scheme over frequency-nonselective Rayleigh fading channels. Error rate expressions as a function of the eigenvalues of the fading correlation matrix and the number of transmit and receive antennas are derived. Numerical results indicate that MIMO systems are resistant to receive fading correlation.
