## Abstract in another language

Two linear codes C, C' ≤ ℤ₄^n 4 are equivalent if there is a permutation π ∈ S_n of the coordinates and a vector φ ∈ {1, 3}^n of column multiplications such that (φ;π)C = C'. This generalizes the notion of code equivalence of linear codes over finite fields.

In a previous paper, the author has described an algorithm to compute the canonical form of a linear code over a finite field. In the present paper, analgorithm is presented to compute the canonical form as well as the automorphism group of a linear code over ℤ₄. This solves the isomorphism problem for ℤ₄-linear codes. An efficient implementation of this algorithm is described and some results on the classification of linear codes over ℤ₄ for small parameters are discussed.
