Abstract: We present an adaptation of Voronoi theory for imaginary quadratic number fields of class number greater than 1. This includes a characterisation of extreme Hermitian forms which is analogous to the classic characterisation of extreme quadratic forms as well as a version of Voronoi's famous algorithm which may be used to enumerate all perfect Hermitian forms for a given imaginary quadratic number field in dimensions 2 and 3. We also present an application of the algorithm which allows us to determine generators of the general linear group of an $ \mathcal {O}_K$-lattice.
