|Title:||On the variance of average distance of subsets in the Hamming space||Authors:||Fu, F.-W.
|Issue Date:||30-Jan-2005||Citation:||Fu, F.-W., Ling, S., Xing, C. (2005-01-30). On the variance of average distance of subsets in the Hamming space. Discrete Applied Mathematics 145 (3) : 465-478.

For a subset C of V n, denote var(C) the variance of the average Hamming distance of C. Let T(n, M; q) and R(n, M; q) denote the minimum and maximum variance of the average Hamming distance of subsets of Vn with cardinality M, respectively. In this paper, we study T(n, M; q) and R(n, M; q) for general q. Using methods from coding theory, we derive upper and lower bounds on var(C), which generalize and unify the bounds for the case q = 2. These bounds enable us to determine the exact value for T(n, M; q) and R(n, M; q) in several cases. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
