In the present paper, we construct a class of nonlinear codes by making use of higher order derivatives of certain functions of algebraic curves. It turns out that the asymptotic bound derived from the Goppa geometry codes can be improved for the entire interval (0,1). In particular, the Tsfasman-Vladut-Zink (TVZ) bound is ameliorated for the entire(More)
In coding theory, self-dual codes and cyclic codes are important classes of codes which have been extensively studied. The main objects of study in this paper are self-dual cyclic codes over finite fields, i.e., the intersection of these two classes. We show that self-dual cyclic codes of length <i>n</i> over \BBF<i>q</i> exist if and only if <i>n</i> is(More)

We generalize a characterization of p-ary (p is a prime) quantum codes given by Feng and Xing to q-ary (q is a prime power) quantum codes. This characterization makes it possible to convert an asymptotic bound of Stichtenoth and Xing for nonlinear algebraic geometry codes to a quantum asymptotic bound. Besides, we also investigate the asymptotic behavior of(More)
The Gilbert-Varshamov (GV) bound for asymptotic families of codes over F/sub q/ has been improved by Tsfasman, Vla/spl breve/dut$80, and Zink (TVZ) in 1982, and only recently further improvements have been obtained by Xing, Elkies, and Niederreiter-O/spl uml/zbudak, by considering also nonlinear codes. These improvements involve higher derivations in(More)
In this paper, we first construct several classes of classical Hermitian self-orthogonal maximum distance separable (MDS) codes. Through these classical codes, we are able to obtain various quantum MDS codes. It turns out that many of our quantum codes are new in the sense that the parameters of our quantum codes cannot be obtained from all previous(More)
