Contraction (with Narrow-Sense BCH-Code)

Let C(A) denote a cyclic [s, n, d]-code over Fb and u ≥ 2 an integer such that u | b−1, u | s, and all elements of B := – (ℤs ∖ Aʹ) have the same remainder mod u. Then d must be a multiple of u and the projection of C(A) on its first s/u coordinates is a constacyclic [s/u, n, d /u]-code, the so called contraction of C(A).
