Özet

One of the most important problems of coding theory is to construct codes with best possible minimum distances. In this paper, we use the algebraic structure of quasi-cyclic codes and the BCH type bound on the minimum distance to search for quasi-cyclic codes over F-5, the finite field with five elements, which improve the minimum distances of best-known linear codes. We construct 15 new linear codes of this type. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
