This paper considers the quantization problem on the Grassmann manifold with dimension n and p. The unique contribution is the derivation of a closed-form formula for the volume of a metric ball in the Grassmann manifold when the radius is sufficiently small. This volume formula holds for Grassmann manifolds with arbitrary dimension n and p, while previous results are only valid for either p=1 or a fixed p with asymptotically large n. Based on the volume formula, the Gilbert-Varshamov and

Assuming a uniformly distributed source and a distortion metric based on the squared chordal distance, tight lower and upper bounds are established for the distortion rate tradeoff. Simulation results match the derived results. As an application of the derived quantization bounds, the information rate of a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system with finite-rate channel-state feedback is accurately quantified for arbitrary finite number of antennas, while previous results are only valid for either Multiple-Input Single-Output (MISO) systems or those with asymptotically large number of transmit antennas but fixed number of receive antennas.
