A mass formula for 4 cyclic codes of length 2e Conference Paper uri icon


  • Cyclic codes of length n = 2e over the ring R4 = Z4[x]/(xn - 1) are studied. A linear code C of length n over Z4 is considered to be an additive submodule of the Z 4-module Zn4. A cyclic code of length n over Z4 is considered as an ideal in the ring R4 = Z 4[x]/xn - 1. It is observed that the Hamming weight of a vector a Zn4 is the number of non-zero components in the vector.
