Multilevel Coding over Eisenstein Integers with Ternary Codes

  title={Multilevel Coding over Eisenstein Integers with Ternary Codes},
  author={S. Stern and Daniel Rohweder and J. Freudenberger and R. Fischer},
This work introduces new signal constellations based on Eisenstein integers, i.e., the hexagonal lattice. These sets of Eisenstein integers have a cardinality which is an integer power of three. They are proposed as signal constellations for representation in the equivalent complex baseband model, especially for applications like physical-layer network coding or MIMO transmission where the constellation is required to be a subset of a lattice. It is shown that these constellations form additive… Expand

It is shown that any signal set in N-dimensional Euclidean space that is matched to an abstract group is essentially what D. Slepian (1968) called a group code for the Gaussian channel and that any such signal set is equivalent to coded phase modulation with linear codes over Z/sub M/. Expand
