The Complete Extended Binary Golay Code

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 12:21 PM

All 4096 vectors in the code are at . . .

Sloane’s list* contains the 12 generating vectors
listed in 2011 by Adlam —

As noted by Conway in Sphere Packings, Lattices and Groups ,
these 4096 vectors, constructed lexicographically, are exactly
the same vectors produced by using the Conway-Sloane version
of the Curtis Miracle Octad Generator (MOG). Conway says this
lexico-MOG equivalence was first discovered by M. J. T. Guy.

(Of course, any  permutation of the 24 columns above produces
a version of the code qua  code. But because the lexicographic and
the MOG constructions yield the same result, that result is in
some sense canonical.)

See my post of July 13, 2020 —

The lexicographic Golay code
contains, embedded within it,
the Miracle Octad Generator.

For some related results, Google the twelfth generator:

* Sloane’s list is of the codewords as the rows of  an orthogonal array
