We extend the method for the formulation of selection rules for high harmonic generation spectra [Phys. Rev. Lett. 80, 3743 (1998)] beyond the dipole approximation and apply it to single-walled carbon nanotubes interacting with a circularly polarized laser field. Our results show that the carbon nanotubes can be excellent systems for a selective generation of high harmonics, up to the soft x-ray regime.
