In this paper, fractional Fourier transform based minimum mean squared error (MMSE) receiver is analyzed and compared with the time and frequency domain MMSE receivers in a multi-antenna environment. The distribution of SINR at the output of the receiver is used for calculating the bit error probability and the results are verified by comparison with the results obtained by Monte Carlo simulations.
