One of the central problems in algebraic coding theory is construction of linear codes with best possible parameters. Quasi-twisted (QT) codes have been promising to solve this problem. Despite extensive search in this class and discovery of a large number of new codes, we have been able to find still more new codes that are QT over the alphabet F5 using a more comprehensive search strategy.
