This paper analyzes the performance of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems with Transmit and Receive Antenna Selection (T-RAS). The average Bit Error Rate (BER), average Symbol Error Rata (SER), outage probability and ergodic capacity are derived by utilizing the Characteristic Function (CF) of the joint output signal-to-noise ratios (SNR). The authors approach can be used over not only independent but also arbitrary correlated Rayleigh, Nakagami-m and Rician fading channels. Simulation results are provided to validate the authors' numerical calculations.
