The concept of regional diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) is introduced by extending the asymptotic outage probability expression for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. It is shown that for both Rayleigh and Rician MIMO channels, the regional diversity gain is a linear function of the regional multiplexing gain and that the original DMT curve can be obtained from the set of regional DMT lines. As a result, vital information for capturing both finite and infinite signal-to-noise ratio characteristics in terms of DMT is provided.
