Abstract

We give an infinite family of maximum rank distance (MRD) codes, which covers properly the largest known linear MRD code family. Our family contains infinite families of non-linear MRD codes, which are the first non-linear examples for most of the parameters. We also give explicit examples and a table that demonstrates the proportion of linear and non-linear families for some small parameters.
