In this paper, a novel multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission scheme, termed as receive antenna selection (RAS)-aided spatial modulation MIMO (SM-MIMO), is proposed for millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications. It employs the spatial modulation (SM) concept and the RAS technique to tackle the costs of the multiple radio frequency (RF) chains at both link ends. Moreover, we develop a pair of RAS algorithms for the proposed mmWave RAS-SM scheme based on the capacity maximization (max-capacity) and the bit-error rate (BER) minimization criteria, which are formulated as two combinatorial optimization problems. The theoretical gradients of the capacity and the BER with respect to RAS variables are derived and the convexities of these problems are discussed. Furthermore, a novel iterative algorithm through jointly designing the log-barrier algorithm (LbA) and the simplified conjugate gradient method is proposed for RAS optimization. Our simulation results show that the proposed RAS-SM schemes are capable of achieving considerable performance gains over conventional norm-based and eigenvalue-based schemes in mmWave MIMO channels, while avoiding an overwhelming complexity imposed by exhaustive search.
