The Algebraic number theory has played an important role in building codes and algebraic lattices. Find algebraic lattices via numbers fields with maximum diversity and minimum product distance has been the subject of study in recent years. Algebraic lattices are those obtained using the ring of integers of a number field and ideal lattices are algebraic lattices endowed with a trace form. The theory of ideal lattices has shown to be useful in information theory. Ideal lattices with high packing density have been studied as an alternative approach for signal transmission over Gaussian channel, which is a communication channel of the type AWGN ( Additive White Gaussian Noise ), where attenuations and delays of signal propagation predominate. Ideal lattices with high diversity and minimum product distance are interesting for signal transmission over Rayleigh fading channel, which is a communication channel that has as main characteristic the multipath propagation. Lattices obtained via quotients rings, which were initially introduced as tools for lattice-based cryptography, has been little explored in relation to construction of known lattices in the literature and also in relation to other applications. This research project aims to: (i) the construction of both ideal lattices for the Gaussian channel and for the Rayleigh fading channel, which perform better than the constructions known in the literature as well as explore new constructions. (ii) explore theoretical and applied field lattices obtained via quotients rings. (AU)
