On the sublattices of the Barnes-wall lattice

  • Ákos G. Horváth


This paper is connected with the fundamental work of E.S. Barnes and G.E. Wall [1] in which the authors defined the so-called Barnes-Wall lattice. We shall determine the number of minima of some special sublattices of dimension 2 n k of this lattice, where 1≤kn.
