Algebraic Space-Time Codes (ASTC) for MIMO systems are based on quaternion algebras. Thanks to their algebraic construction, the ASTC codes are full-rank, full-rate and have the non-vanishing determinant property. These codes have been proposed for MIMO flat fading channels in order to increase the spectral efficiency and to maximize the coding gain. The purpose of this work is to analyze the performance of the ASTC in a frequency selective Rayleigh channel. To deal with the frequency selectivity, we use the OFDM modulation. The capacity performances of an ASTC-MIMO-OFDM system, under correlated Rayleigh frequency-selective channel, have been evaluated.
