Early Access

Early Access articles are published articles within a journal that have not yet been assigned to a formal issue. This means they do not yet have a volume number, issue number, or page numbers assigned to them, however, they can still be found and cited using their DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Early Access publication benefits the research community by making new scientific discoveries known as quickly as possible.

Readers can access Early Access articles via the “Early Access” tab for the selected journal.

  • The Hamming ball of radius $ w $ in $ \{0,1\}^n $ is the set $ \mathcal{B}(n,w) $ of all binary words of length $ n $ and Hamming weight at most $ w $. We consider injective mappings $ \varphi : \{0,1\}^m \to \mathcal{B}(n,w) $ with the following domination property: every position $ j \in [n] $ is dominated by some position $ i \in [m] $, in the sense that if position $ i $ in $ {\mathit{\boldsymbol{x}}} \in \{0,1\}^m $ is "switched off" (equal zero), then necessarily position $ j $ in its image $ \varphi({\mathit{\boldsymbol{x}}}) $ is switched off. This property may be described more precisely in terms of a bipartite domination graph $ G = \bigl([m] \cup [n], E\bigr) $ with no isolated vertices; for all $ (i,j) \in E $ and all $ {\mathit{\boldsymbol{x}}}\in \{0,1\}^m $, we require that $ x_i = 0 $ implies $ y_j = 0 $, where $ {\mathit{\boldsymbol{y}}} = \varphi({\mathit{\boldsymbol{x}}}) $. Although such domination mappings recently found applications in the context of coding for high-performance interconnects, to the best of our knowledge, they were not previously studied. The concept of domination mapping is thus interesting from both practical and combinatorial points of view.

    In this paper, we begin with simple necessary conditions for the existence of an $ (m,n,w) $-domination mapping $ \varphi : \{0,1\}^m \to \mathcal{B}(n,w) $. We then provide several explicit constructions of such mappings, which show that the necessary conditions are also sufficient when $ w = 1 $, when $ w = 2 $ and $ m $ is odd, or when $ m \leqslant 3w $. One of our main results herein is a proof that the trivial necessary condition $ | \mathcal{B}(n,w)| \geqslant 2^m $ is, in fact, sufficient for the existence of an $ (m,n,w) $-domination mapping whenever $ m $ is sufficiently large. We also present a polynomial-time algorithm that, given any $ m $, $ n $, and $ w $, determines whether an $ (m,n,w) $-domination mapping exists for a domination graph with an equitable degree distribution.
