In this paper, the goal is to obtain constacyclic codes over Lipschitz integers in terms of Lipschitz metric. A decoding procedure is proposed for these codes, some of which have been shown to be perfect codes. Performance of constacyclic codes over Lipschitz integers is investigated over Additive White Gaussian Channel (AWGN) by means of symbol error rates and coding gain. According to the achieved results, these codes can be used in coded modulation schemes based on Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM)-type constellations. Furthermore, it is shown that the Lipschitz metric is more suitable than Hamming metric and Lee metric for QAM type two dimensional constellations.
