An Upper Bound on the Size of a Code with the $k$-Identifiable Parent Property

Simon R. Blackburn

Abstract: The paper gives an upper bound on the size of a $q$-ary code of length $n$ that has the $k$-identifiable parent property. One consequence of this bound is that the optimal rate of such a code is determined in many cases when $q\rightarrow\infty$ with $k$ and $n$ fixed.
