We consider a multi-user MIMO downlink system employing zero-forcing beamforming (ZFBF) as a spatial multiplexing strategy, and propose low-complexity user subset selection methods based on a clique (fully connected subgraph) search. The proposed algorithms, maximum weighted clique (MWC)-ZFBF and greedy weighted clique (GWC)-ZFBF, are shown to achieve the asymptotic sum-capacity of MIMO downlink channels as the number of users goes to infinity. Thus, clique search based ZFBF is an appealing
