  • Z4-codes and their Gray map images as orthogonal arrays 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Kusuma, Josephine; Solé, Patrick (2017-07) - Journal article
    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 ...
  • Highest rank of a polytope for An 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Fernandes, Maria Elisa; Leemans, Dimitri; Mixer, Mark (2017-04-28) - Journal article
    We prove that the highest rank of a string C-group constructed from an alternating group Altn is 0 if n = 3, 4, 6, 7, 8; 3 if n = 5; 4 if n = 9; 5 if n = 10; 6 if n = 11; and the floor of (n-1)/2 if n ≥ 12. This solves a ...
  • The Missing Link! A new skeleton for evolutionary multi-agent systems in Erlang 

    Stypka, Jan; Turek, Wojciech; Byrski, Aleksander; Kisiel-Dorohinicki, Marek; Barwell, Adam David; Brown, Christopher Mark; Hammond, Kevin; Janjic, Vladimir (2017-04-26) - Journal article
    Evolutionary multi-agent systems (EMAS) play a critical role in many artificial intelligence applications that are in use today. In this paper, we present a new generic skeleton in Erlang for parallel EMAS computations. ...
  • Generating sets of finite groups 

    Cameron, Peter Jephson; Lucchini, Andrea; Roney-Dougal, Colva Mary (2017-04-02) - Journal article
    We investigate the extent to which the exchange relation holds in finite groups G. We define a new equivalence relation ≡m, where two elements are equivalent if each can be substituted for the other in any generating set ...
  • On the generating graph of a simple group 

    Lucchini, Andrea; Maroti, Attila; Roney-Dougal, Colva Mary (2016-09-26) - Journal article
    The generating graph Γ(H) of a finite group H is the graph defined on the elements of H, with an edge between two vertices if and only if they generate H. We show that if H is a sufficiently large simple group with Γ(G) ≅ ...
