Abstract: Certain nonlinear binary codes contain more codewords than any comparable linear code presently known. These include the Kerdock and Preparata codes, which exist for all lengths 4m ≥ 16. At length 16 they coincide to give the NordstromRobinson code. This paper constructs a nonlinear (64, 237, 12) code as the binary image, under the Gray map, of an extended cyclic code defined over the integers modulo 4 using Galois rings. The NordstromRobinson code is defined in this same way, and like the NordstromRobinson code, the new code is better than any linear code that is presently known.
