On the error-detecting performance of some classes of block codes
Journal article, 2004

We establish the properness of some classes of binary block codes with symmetric distance distribution, including Kerdock codes and codes that satisfy the Grey-Rankin bound, as well as the properness of Preparata codes, thus augmenting the list of very few known proper nonlinear codes.
