In underlay spectrum sharing, the interference constraint limits transmissions by the secondary transmitter, which concurrently accesses the spectrum, to protect the primary user from excessive interference. Transmit antenna selection enables a secondary user to overcome the limitations imposed by the interference constraint using low-complexity hardware. We develop an optimal and novel joint antenna selection and power adaptation rule that minimizes the average symbol error probability (SEP) of a secondary user that is subject to two practically well-motivated constraints. The first is the less-studied but general interference-outage constraint, which limits the probability that the interference power at the primary receiver exceeds a threshold. The second constraint limits the peak transmit power of the secondary transmitter. We show that the optimal rule for the interference-outage constraint has a novel structure that is markedly different from the rules considered in the literature. We then present an insightful geometric interpretation of its structure. Using this, we also propose a practically amenable and near-optimal variant of the optimal rule called the linear rule, and analyze its performance. Our numerical results show that the optimal rule reduces the average SEP by one to two orders of magnitude compared to the rules in the literature.
