Repetition NRT-Code with Arbitrary Length

A linear [(s, T ), 1, sT ]-NRT-code C over Fb exists for all T ≥ 1 and s ≥ 1. Its dual A = C is a linear ordered orthogonal array OOA(bsT−1, s,Fb, T , sT −1).

Construction of the Linear NRT-Code

The code C is constructed as

C = {(x,…, x | ⋯ | x,…, x)  :  xFb} ⊂ Fb(s,T ).

Therefore the 1×(s, T ) matrix (1,…, 1 | ⋯ | 1,…, 1) is a generator matrix of C. For s > 1 C can also be constructed as an s-times juxtaposition or NRT-code repetition of the [(1, T ), 1, T ]-NRT-repetition code.

Construction of the Orthogonal Array

The dual orthogonal array A = C is a hyperplane in Fb(s,T ) containing no coordinate axis.


NRT-repetition-codes meet the Singleton bound with equality and are therefore MDS-NRT-codes. Alternatively, their dual OOAs are OOAs with index unity.
