  • This paper investigates the generalized rank weights, with a definition implied by the study of the generalized rank weight enumerator. We study rank metric codes over $L$, where $L$ is a finite extension of a field $K$. This is a generalization of the case where $K=\mathbb{F}_q $ and $L={\mathbb{F}_{{q^m}}}$ of Gabidulin codes to arbitrary characteristic. We show equivalence to previous definitions, in particular the ones by Kurihara-Matsumoto-Uyematsu [12,13], Oggier-Sboui [16] and Ducoat [6]. As an application of the notion of generalized rank weights, we discuss codes that are degenerate with respect to the rank metric.
