In this correspondence, we compute the weight enumerators of various quadratic residue codes over F/sub 2/ and F/sub 3/, together with certain codes of related families like the duadic and the quadratic double circulant codes. We use a parallel algorithm to find the number of codewords of a given (not too high) weight, from which we deduce by usual(More)
This paper is a very lightly edited version of an article originally written in 1989 but never fully completed. We had planned a final section to make use of the ability to change at will between the Birman-Wenzl algebra, as given by generators and relations, and the geometric framework of the tangles, so as to look in more detail at the representation(More)

Based on ideas of Kötter and Kschischang [6] we use constant dimension subspaces as codewords in a network. We show a connection to the theory of q-analogues of a combinatorial designs, which has been studied in [1] as a purely combinatorial object. For the construction of network codes we successfully modified methods (construction with prescribed(More)
MICHAEL KIERMAIER, ALFRED WASSERMANN michael.kiermaier, Mathematical Department, University of Bayreuth, D-95440 Bayreuth, GERMANY Abstract. In this paper we investigate codes over finite commutative rings R, whose generator matrices are built from α-circulant matrices. For a non-trivial ideal I < R we give a method to lift(More)
New linear codes (sometimes optimal) over the finite field with q elements are constructed. In order to do this, an equivalence between the existence of a linear code with a prescribed minimum distance and the existence of a solution of a certain system of Diophantine linear equations is used. To reduce the size of the system of equations, the search for(More)
Let Fq denote a finite field with q elements and let V = (Fq)m,n be the Fq-vector space of matrices over Fq of type (m,n). On V we define the so-called rank metric distance by d(A,B) = rank(A−B) for A,B ∈ V . Clearly, the distance d is a translation invariant metric on V . A subset C ⊆ V endowed with the metric d is called a rank metric code with minimum(More)
