This letter introduces a closed form expression for the channel capacity increase achieved by adding a new pair of transmit and receive antennas. By analyzing this expression, an iterative transmit/receive antenna selection algorithm of low computational complexity is proposed. The new algorithm has higher computational complexity than some existing algorithms, but as the results show, the performance improvement of the proposed algorithm approaching more to the optimal algorithm.
