Non-Linear Maximum Rank Distance Codes in the Cyclic Model for the Field Reduction of Finite Geometries

Nicola Durante, Alessandro Siciliano


In this paper we construct infinite families of non-linear maximum rank distance codes by using the setting of bilinear forms of a finite vector space. We also give a geometric description of such codes by using the cyclic model for the field reduction of finite geometries and we show that these families contain the non-linear maximum rank distance codes recently provided by Cossidente, Marino and Pavese.
