Finite Commutative Rings with a MacWilliams Type Relation for the m-Spotty Hamming Weight Enumerators

29 Dec 2016  ·  Nikseresht Ashkan ·

Let $R$ be a finite commutative ring. We prove that a MacWilliams type relation between the m-spotty weight enumerators of a linear code over $R$ and its dual hold, if and only if, $R$ is a Frobenius (equivalently, Quasi-Frobenius) ring, if and only if, the number of maximal ideals and minimal ideals of $R$ are the same, if and only if, for every linear code $C$ over $R$, the dual of the dual $C$ is $C$ itself... Also as an intermediate step, we present a new and simpler proof for the commutative case of Wood's theorem which states that $R$ has a generating character if and only if $R$ is a Frobenius ring. read more
