Concatenation of Two Orthogonal Arrays

Given two (linear) orthogonal arrays A1, A2 with parameters OA(M1, s1, SM2, k) and OA(M2, s2, Sb, k), a new (linear) OA(M1, s1s2, Sb, k) can be constructed. Using duality, a linear [s1s2, s1s2m1m2, k + 1]-code over Fb can be constructed based on a linear [s1, s1m1, k + 1]-code over Fbm2 and a linear [s2, s2m2, k + 1]-code over Fb.


Let φ : SM2A2Sbs2 denote an arbitrary bijection. If A1 and A2 are linear, let φ : Fbm2A2 be Fb-linear. Then the resulting OA is defined as

{(φ(xi))i=1,…, s1  :  xA1}.
