We consider optimal constant weight codes over arbitrary alphabets. Some of these codes are derived from good codes over the same alphabet, and some of these codes are derived from block design. Generalizations of Steiner systems play an important role in this context. We give several construction methods for these generalizations. An interesting class of… CONTINUE READING
