Abstract In the celebrated work of Emre Telatar in the year 1999 (14274 citations to date), it was shown that the expected value of the mutual information I=ln det(I_m+1/t HH') of an m by n MIMO Rayleigh channel matrix H with a SNR 1/t can be represented as an integral involving Laguerre polynomials. We show, in this work, that Telatar's integral representation can be explicitly evaluated to a finite sum of the form E[I]=\sum_{k=0}^{n+m-3} a_k t^k + \e^t Ei(-t) \sum_{k=0}^{n+m-2} b_k t^k, where Ei(-t) is the exponential integral and a_k, b_k are known constants that do not dependent on t. The renewed interest in this classical information theory problem came from, quite surprisingly, the recent development in quantum information theory.
