Complete weight enumerators of generalized doubly even self-dual codes.

Finite fields and their applications, 10 (2004) 540-550.

Note that the proof that there is no doubly-even euclidean self-dual [24,12,9]
code over F4 is wrong. There are
two possible weight enumerators
of such codes,
one of which (with F2-rational subcode
of dimension 4) is easily excluded.
The paper with Sihuang Hu
closes the gap by showing that
the minimum distance of a doubly-even euclidean self-dual code
of length 24 over F4 is at most 8.
