A new method to approximate the receive minimum distance is presented. In the proposed approximation, the geometric mean of the singular values of the channel matrix is used instead of the conventional minimum singular value. Numerical experiments show that the proposed approximation has less mean squared error than the minimum singular value bound and outperforms the minimum singular value bound in terms of bit error rate when they are applied to the antenna subgroup selection system.
