Cyclic codes of length p^n over Z_(p^3 )



The purpose of this paper is to find a description of the cyclic codes of length --over --, such that is a prime. It is known that cyclic codes of length over are ideals of the ring-----. In this paper we prove that the is a local ring with unique maximal ideal ----. We also prove that cyclic codes of length over are generated as ideals by at most three elements.
