Quaternary linear code over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) 

Description

A linear code encoding \(K\) states (codewords) in \(n\) coordinates over the ring \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) of integers modulo 4.

  • Niemeier lattice code — Niemeier lattice codes can be constructed from quaternary codes over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) via Construction \(A_4\) [2].
  • Melas code — The even-weight subcode of the Melas code can be lifted to a code over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) [3].
  • Hergert code — Hergert codes can be seen, via the Gray map, as linear codes over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) [4,5].
  • Delsarte-Goethals (DG) code — DG codes can be seen, via the Gray map, as extended linear cyclic codes over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) [4,5].
  • Reed-Muller (RM) code — RM codes are images of linear quaternary codes over \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) under the Gray map [6; Sec. 6.3].
