% This function constructs the rectangular QAM constellations by
% doing two PAM modulations: one for the in-phase and one for the
% quadrature dimension (see [1] for more details).

k = log2(M);
I = 2^ceil(k/2);
Q = 2^floor(k/2);

% Produce PAM constellation points for in-phase and quadrature
I_t = -(I-1):2:I-1;
Q_t = Q-1:-2:-(Q-1);

% Re-order based on the PAM Gray mapping
I_pts = zeros(size(I_t)); % pre-allocate
Q_pts = zeros(size(Q_t)); % pre-allocate
for i=1:length(I_t)
    I_pts(so{log2(I)}(i)+1) = I_t(i);
end
for i=1:length(Q_t)
    Q_pts(so{log2(Q)}(i)+1) = Q_t(i);
end

% Map the symbols 0:M-1 to constellation points
QAM_I=zeros(1,M); % pre-allocate
QAM_Q=zeros(1,M);
