We propose a distributed scheduling algorithm for multiuser MIMO downlink with adaptive feedback. In this algorithm each mobile station (MS) selects transmission scheme, including beamforming (BF) and spatial multiplexing (SM) according to its channel state and then feeds back channel state information (CSI) adaptively. The base station (BS) receives CSI from each MS and selects user subset based on minimum spatial correlation criteria or system capacity maximization. The proposed user
