Following V.V. Ginzburg (1984), a hierarchy of codes is proposed to match the geometric partitioning of a signal set. The authors show that coset codes (including Ungerboeck, lattice, and binary codes) and indeed any codes which rely on partitioning of the signal set are all subclasses of the proposed coding scheme. The combination of such codes in a multilevel scheme often leads to reduced complexity in comparison with previously published schemes. A variety of decoder structures is discussed
