A code $C$ in a generalised quadrangle ${\mathcal Q}$ is defined to be a subset of the vertex set of the point-line incidence graph $\varGamma$ of ${\mathcal Q}$. The minimum distance $\delta$ of $C$ is the smallest distance between a pair of distinct elements of $C$. The graph metric gives rise to the distance partition $\{C,C_1,\ldots,C_\rho\}$,...

Let $q$ be a prime power and $V\cong{\mathbb F}_q^n$. A $t$-$(n,k,\lambda)_q$ design, or simply a subspace design, is a pair ${\mathcal D}=(V,{\mathcal B})$, where ${\mathcal B}$ is a subset of the set of all $k$-dimensional subspaces of $V$, with the property that each $t$-dimensional subspace of $V$ is contained in precisely $\lambda$ elements of...

A code $C$ in the Hamming metric, that is, is a subset of the vertex set $V\varGamma$ of the Hamming graph $\varGamma=H(m,q)$, gives rise to a natural distance partition $\{C,C_1,\ldots,C_\rho\}$, where $\rho$ is the covering radius of $C$. Such a code $C$ is called completely transitive if the automorphism group $\rm{Aut}(C)$ acts transitively on...

This paper considers three imprimitive distance-regular graphs with $486$ vertices and diameter $4$: the Koolen--Riebeek graph (which is bipartite), the Soicher graph (which is antipodal), and the incidence graph of a symmetric transversal design obtained from the affine geometry $\mathrm{AG}(5,3)$ (which is both). It is shown that each of these is...

A code $C$ in the Hamming graph $\varGamma=H(m,q)$ is $2$-neighbour-transitive if ${\rm Aut}(C)$ acts transitively on each of $C=C_0$, $C_1$ and $C_2$, the first three parts of the distance partition of $V\varGamma$ with respect to $C$. Previous classifications of families of $2$-neighbour-transitive codes leave only those with an affine action on...

The main result here is a characterisation of binary 2-neighbour-transitive codes with minimum distance at least 5 via their minimal subcodes, which are found to be generated by certain designs. The motivation for studying this class of codes comes primarily from their relationship to the class of completely regular codes. The results contained her...

A code is a subset of the vertex set of a Hamming graph. The set of s-neighbours of a code is the set of all vertices at Hamming distance s from their nearest codeword. A code C is s-elusive if there exists a distinct code C that is equivalent to C under the full automorphism group of the Hamming graph such that C and C have the same set of s-neigh...

A code $C$ in the Hamming graph $\varGamma=H(m,q)$ is $2\it{\text{-neighbour-transitive}}$ if ${\rm Aut}(C)$ acts transitively on each of $C=C_0$, $C_1$ and $C_2$, the first three parts of the distance partition of $V\varGamma$ with respect to $C$. Previous classifications of families of $2$-neighbour-transitive codes leave only those with an affin...

Let $X$ be a subgroup of the full automorphism group of the Hamming graph $H(m,q)$, and $C$ a subset of the vertices of the Hamming graph. We say that $C$ is an \emph{$(X,2)$-neighbour transitive code} if $X$ is transitive on $C$, as well as $C_1$ and $C_2$, the sets of vertices which are distance $1$ and $2$ from the code. This paper begins the cl...

In this paper we investigate a parameter of graphs, called the circular altitude, introduced by Peter Cameron. We show that the circular altitude provides a lower bound on the circular chromatic number, and hence on the chromatic number, of a graph and investigate this parameter for the iterated Mycielskian of certain graphs.

We consider a code to be a subset of the vertex set of a Hamming graph. The
set of $s$-neighbours of a code is the set of vertices, not in the code, at
distance $s$ from some codeword, but not distance less than $s$ from any
codeword. A $2$-neighbour transitive code is a code which admits a group $X$ of
automorphisms which is transitive on the $s$-...

We consider a code to be a subset of the vertices of a Hamming graph and the
set of neighbours are those vertices not in the code, which are distance one
from some codeword. An elusive code is a code for which the automorphism group
of the set of neighbours is larger than that of the code itself. It is an open
question as to whether, for an elusive...

We consider a code to be a subset of the vertex set of a Hamming graph. We
examine elusive pairs, code-group pairs where the code is not determined by
knowledge of its set of neighbours. We construct a new infinite family of
elusive pairs, where the group in question acts transitively on the set of
neighbours of the code. In our examples, we find t...
