We obtain the weight distributions of the Melas and Zetterberg codes and the double error correcting quadratic Goppa codes in terms of the traces of certain Hecke operators acting on spaces of cusp forms for the congruence subgroup T,(4)cSL,(Z). The result is obtained from a description of the weight distributions of the dual codes in terms of class numbers(More)
