On the Automorphism Group of Distinct Weight Codes


In this work, we study binary linear distinct weight codes (DW-code). We give a complete classification of -DW-codes and enumerate their equivalence classes in terms of the number of solutions of specific Diophantine Equations. We use the Q-extension program to provide examples.
