Constructions of Three-Transmit-Antenna Space-Time Codes

In this paper, we give design methods for three-transmit-antenna space-time codes which have reasonable parameters. A few examples are given to show that some unitary space-time codes constructed with our methods are better than the previously best-known ones.
