We show that when an inner linear cyclic binary code which has an irreducible check polynomial is concatenated with an appropriately chosen maximal-distance-separable outer code, then the overall code is cyclic OverGF(2). Using this theorem, we construct a number of linear cyclic binary codes which are better than any previously known. In particular, by taking the inner code to be a quadratic residue code, we obtain linear cyclic binary codes of lengthN, rateR, and distanceD geq (1 - 2R)N/ sqrt{2 log N}, which compares favorably with the BCH distanceD sim (2 ln R^{-1})N/log N, although it still fails to achieve the linear growth of distance with block length which is possible with noncyclic linear concatenated codes. While this construction yields many codes, including several with block lengths greater than10^{10^5}, we have not been able to prove that there are arbitrarily long codes of this type without invoking the Riemann hypothesis or the revised Artin conjecture, as the existence of long codes of our type is equivalent to the existence of large primespfor which the index of 2 is(p - 1)/2.
