Improvement by Maruta on the Griesmer Bound

In a series of papers Maruta determines cases in which the Griesmer bound can be improved by one, i.e., parameters b, n, and d where a linear [s, n, d]-code over Fb can only exist if

s ≥ 1 + $\displaystyle \sum_{{i=0}}^{{n−1}}$$\displaystyle \left\lceil\vphantom{ \frac{d}{b^{i}}}\right.$$\displaystyle {\frac{{d}}{{b^{i}}}}$$\displaystyle \left.\vphantom{ \frac{d}{b^{i}}}\right\rceil$.

In [1] this is shown for n = 4, d = b3b2b – ⌈$ \sqrt{{b}}$⌉ − 1, and all b ≥ 4. In [2] for n = 5, d = b4b3b – ⌈$ \sqrt{{b}}$⌉ − 1, and all b ≥ 4. In [3] for d = (n – 2)bn−1 – (n – 1)bn−2 for n and b with either n = 3, 4, 5 and bn or n ≥ 6 and b ≥ 2n−3.
