On generalized MacDonald codes

Padmapani Seneviratne and Lauren Melcher

Vol. 11 (2018), No. 5, 885–892
Abstract

We show that the generalized q-ary MacDonald codes Cn,u,t(q) with parameters [t[n 1 ] [u 1 ],n,tqn1 qu1] are two-weight codes with nonzero weights w1 = tqn1 , w2 = tqn1 qu1 and determine the complete weight enumerator of these codes. This leads to a family of strongly regular graphs with parameters qn ,qn qnu ,qn 2qnu ,qn qnu. Further, we show that the codes Cn,u,t(q) satisfy the Griesmer bound and are self-orthogonal for q = 2.
