Abstract It is shown that an n -dimensional unimodular lattice has minimal norm at most 2[ n /24]+2, unless n =23 when the bound must be increased by 1. This result was previously known only for even unimodular lattices. Quebbemann had extended the bound for even unimodular lattices to strongly N -modular even lattices for N in{1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 14, 15, 23}, (*)and analogous bounds are established here for odd lattices satisfying certain technical conditions (which are trivial for N =1 and…

A lower bound computation on the maximal secrecy gain shows that extremal lattices provide secrecy gains which are very close to this lower bound, thus confirming the good behavior of this class of lattices with respect to the secrecy gain.
of Euclidean lattices , with some applications
By “Euclidean space” of dimension n we mean a real vector space of dimension n, equipped with a positive-definite inner product 〈·, ·〉. We usually call such a space “Rn” even when there is no
Class Groups and Modular Lattices
We show that in the case of 2-dimensional lattices, Quebbemann's notion of modular and strongly modular lattices has a natural extension to the class group of a given discriminant, in terms of a

This paper deals with discrete subgroups of euclidean vector spaces, equivalently finitely generated free abelian groups (isomorphic to Z for some n ∈ N) together with a positive definite quadratic
Some Results Related to the Conjecture by Belfiore and Solé
It is shown that on an n=24m+8k -dimensional even unimodular lattice, if the shortest vector length is at least 2m, then as the number of vectors of length 2m decreases, the secrecy gain increases, and it is proved that on general unimmodular lattices, this result is the same.

For some extremal (optimal) odd unimodular lattices L in dimensions n=12,16,20,32,36,40 and 44, we determine all positive integers k such that L contains a k-frame. This result yields the existence

This paper investigates 2- and 3-modular lattices which can be constructed from linear codes and compares them with unimodular lattice lattices and finds that most even 2-and-3-modularity lattices are found to have better performance than the best unimodULAR lattices in dimension n.
