Achieving 1/2 log (1+SNR) on the AWGN channel with lattice encoding and decoding

  title={Achieving 1/2 log (1+SNR) on the AWGN channel with lattice encoding and decoding},
  author={Uri Erez and Ram Zamir},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Information Theory},
We address an open question, regarding whether a lattice code with lattice decoding (as opposed to maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding) can achieve the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel capacity. We first demonstrate how minimum mean-square error (MMSE) scaling along with dithering (lattice randomization) techniques can transform the power-constrained AWGN channel into a modulo-lattice additive noise channel, whose effective noise is reduced by a factor of /spl radic/(1+SNR/SNR).
