Linear Programming Bounds for Entanglement-Assisted Quantum Codes

In this paper, we define two split weight enumerators for general quantum codes with entanglement assistance, including nonadditive codes. We show that they obey a MacWilliams identity, which allows us to prove algebraic linear programming bounds, such as the Singleton bound, the Hamming bound, and the first linear programming bound. On the other hand, we derive additional constraints on the size of Pauli subgroups for quantum codes, which helps to improve the linear programming bounds on the minimum distance of quantum codes of small length.View Original Article
