A precise analysis of the capacity of a wireless downlink packet data system with a fair scheduler is presented. We assume the use of a transmit diversity scheme is operating at each link under the assumption of spatially correlated Rayleigh fading. Numerical results show that spatial fading correlation of the channel improves the capacity of multiuser diversity by reducing the space diversity gain of transmit diversity in each link.
