A method for searching minimum Euclidean distances of respective substreams for different modulation orders of M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation signals in multiple-input and multiple-output systems is described. A channel matrix is cyclically-sorted sequentially and QR-decomposed. Using upper triangular matrices obtained by QR decomposition, minimum Euclidean distances are searched over trellis diagrams consisting of symbol-difference lattice points by computationally efficient multiple trellis-search algorithms. The simulation results demonstrate that per-substream minimum Euclidean distances can be detected with a high correct-estimation probability by path-re-searching controls over different modulation orders.
