Abstract

We propose a construction technique for unitary space-time codes that use Givens rotation matrices. These constellations have a desirable weak group property that leads to reduced construction and decoding complexity. The newly constructed constellations have the best known diversity product and diversity sum for a wide range of constellation sizes and number of transmit antennas.
