Non–existence of some 4–dimensional Griesmer codes over finite fields

Kazuki Kumegawa, Tatsuya Maruta


We prove the non--existence of $[g_q(4,d),4,d]_q$ codes for $d=2q^3-rq^2-2q+1$ for $3 \le r \le (q+1)/2$, $q \ge 5$; $d=2q^3-3q^2-3q+1$ for $q \ge 9$; $d=2q^3-4q^2-3q+1$ for $q \ge 9$; and $d=q^3-q^2-rq-2$ with $r=4, 5$ or $6$ for $q \ge 9$, where $g_q(4,d)=\sum_{i=0}^{3} \left\lceil d/q^i \right\rceil$. This yields that $n_q(4,d) = g_q(4,d)+1$ for $2q^3-3q^2-3q+1 \le d \le 2q^3-3q^2$, $2q^3-5q^2-2q+1 \le d \le 2q^3-5q^2$ and $q^3-q^2-rq-2 \le d \le q^3-q^2-rq$ with $4 \le r \le 6$ for $q \ge 9$ and that $n_q(4,d) \ge g_q(4,d)+1$ for $2q^3-rq^2-2q+1 \le d \le 2q^3-rq^2-q$ for $3 \le r \le (q+1)/2$, $q \ge 5$ and $2q^3-4q^2-3q+1 \le d \le 2q^3-4q^2-2q$ for $q \ge 9$, where $n_q(4,d)$ denotes the minimum length $n$ for which an $[n,4,d]_q$ code exists.
