Multicast is an important communication mode in wireless ad hoc networks. Furthermore, adaptive antenna array with Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output(MIMO) channel model are more suitable for wireless multipath environments. In this paper, we study energy efficient one hop multicast in such environment. The problem is formulated as a non-linear programming problem and two heuristic algorithms are proposed to solve the problem.
