Since it has an orthonormal basis, the shortest vector problem and the closest vector problem are easy to solve in this particular lattice. But, these problems are hard to solve when we consider a rotation of Z^n lattice. Infact, even though it is known that the Z^nisomorphism problem in NP \cap CoNP, we still don't have an efficient algorithm to solve it. Motivated by the above, in this paper we investigate the properties of the bases of Z^n lattice which are the sets of column/row vectors of unimodular matrices. We show that an integer primitive vector of norm strictly greater than 1 can be extended to a unimodular matrix U such that the remaining vectors have norm strictly smaller than the initial primitive vector. We also show a reduction from SVP in any lattice isomorphic to Z^n to SVP in n1 dimensional sublattice of Z^n. We define two new classes of lattice bases and show certain results related to Z^n bases. Finally, we study the relation between any solution to Successive Minima Problem and the set of Voronoi relevant vectors and present some bounds related to the compact bases of Z^n.
