1. A method for transmitting comprising the steps of:

  • a) selecting a data symbol as a function of a data signal, where each data symbol represents a different one of a number of regions of an N-dimensional signal space, and each data symbol is associated with a different N-dimensional signal point in the N-dimensional signal space;

    b) selecting an N-dimensional signal point as a function of an applied signal, where the signal point is selected from the N-dimensional signal space;

    c) adding the signal space coordinates of the selected data symbol and the selected N-dimensional signal point to provide a resultant signal point;

    where each resultant signal point is taken from the region associated with the data symbol and where each one of the number of regions has a non-square shape.
