Antenna selection for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) where only a subset of antennas at the transmitter and/or receiver are activated for signal transmission is a practical technique for the realization of full diversity. Despite extensive research, closed-form capacity expressions for MIMO systems employing transmit antenna selection (TAS) and orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs) are not available. We thus derive the exact closed-form capacity expressions when an OSTBC is employed and N transmit antennas out of total Lt antennas are selected for transmission. The expressions are valid for a frequency-flat Rayleigh fading MIMO channel and avoid numerical integration methods
