ℤ4-codes and their Gray map images as orthogonal arrays
MetadataShow full item record
A classic result of Delsarte connects the strength (as orthogonal array) of a linear code with the minimum weight of its dual: the former is one less than the latter.Since the paper of Hammons et al., there is a lot of interest in codes over rings, especially in codes over ℤ4 and their (usually non-linear) binary Gray map images.We show that Delsarte's observation extends to codes over arbitrary finite commutative rings with identity. Also, we show that the strength of the Gray map image of a ℤ4 code is one less than the minimum Lee weight of its Gray map image.
