In lattice-coded multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, optimal decoding amounts to solving the closest vector problem (CVP). Embedding is a powerful technique for the approximate CVP, yet its remarkable performance is not well understood. In this paper, we analyze the embedding technique from a bounded distance decoding (BDD) viewpoint.
