Code whose set of codewords forms an orbit of some reference codeword under a subgroup of the automorphism group, i.e., the group of distance-preserving transformations on the metric space defined with the code's alphabet.
- Binary group-orbit code — Binary group-orbit codes are group-orbit codes in Hamming space.
- Linear code over \(G\) — The set of codewords of a linear code over \(G\) can be thought of as an orbit of a particular codeword under the group formed by the code. However, group orbit codes do not have to be linear [2; Remark 8.4.3].
- Multi-channel group-orbit code
- Cyclic code — All codewords of a cyclic code can be obtained from any codeword via cyclic shifts, meaning that the code consists of only one orbit.
- Group-algebra code — A \(q\)-ary group-orbit code hosts a transitive group action. If the action is also free, then the code is a group-algebra code.
- Slepian group-orbit code — Slepian group-orbit codes are group-orbit codes on spheres.
