A multiuser beamforming algorithm using codebook is proposed in this letter to reduce inter-user interference and improve the throughput of the downlink of multiuser MIMO systems. Basing on the minimal leakage criterion, we combine the codebook selection, limited feedforward and MMSE detection method in the new proposed algorithm. It not only improves the performance of systems, but also reduces the computational complexity at transmitter. Simulation results shows that the proposed algorithm has better performance than conventional beamforming methods.
