Geometric decoding (GD) is a newly proposed decoding technique for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission over the fading channels. With a complete search on all symbol vectors in the lattice structure, GD requires about the same decoding complexity to achieve the same optimum block-error rates (BLERs) as that of ML decoding. In this paper, we propose a simple implementation of GD for optimum decoding of MIMO transmission. The GD decoder uses the channel matrix to construct a hyper… CONTINUE READING
