Weight distribution of cyclic codes defined by quadratic forms and related curves

19 Mar 2020 Podestá Ricardo A. Videla Denis E.

We consider cyclic codes $\mathcal{C}_\mathcal{L}$ associated to quadratic trace forms in $m$ variables $Q_R(x) = \operatorname{Tr}_{q^m/q}(xR(x))$ determined by a family $\mathcal{L}$ of $q$-linearized polynomials $R$ over $\mathbb{F}_{q^m}$, and three related codes $\mathcal{C}_{\mathcal{L},0}$, $\mathcal{C}_{\mathcal{L},1}$ and $\mathcal{C}_{\mathcal{L},2}$. We describe the spectra for all these codes when $\mathcal{L}$ is an even rank family, in terms of the distribution of ranks of the forms $Q_R$ in the family $\mathcal{L}$, and we also compute the complete weight enumerator for $\mathcal{C}_\mathcal{L}$...
