A Construction of Rotated Lattices via Totally Real Subfields of the Cyclotomic Field Q(z_p)

Antonio A. Andrade, Everton L. Oliveira, José C. Interlando


The theory of lattices have shown to be useful in information theory and rotated lattices with high modulations diversity have been extensively studied as an alternative approach for transmission over a Rayleigh-fading channel, where the performance of this modulation schemes essentially depends of the modulation diversity and of the minimum product distance to achieve substantial coding gains. The maximum diversity of a rotated lattice is guaranteed when we use totally real number fields and the minimum product distance is optimized by considering fields with minimum discriminant. In this paper, we present a construction of rotated lattice for the Rayleigh fading channel in Euclidean spaces with full diversity, where this construction is through a totally real subfield K of the cyclotomic field Q(z_p), where p is an odd prime, obtained by endowing their ring of integers.
