The minimum distance of Reed-Muller-type codes has an algebraic interpretation, in terms of its associated vanishing ideal $I$ and the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of $I$, called the $\delta$-function. In this talk, we present this interpretation and study the asymptotic behavior of the $\delta$-function, in particular, we related the stabilization point, $r$ of $I$ of the $\delta$-function with the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of $I$. We see that when generalized the $\delta$-function to graded ideals, the point $r I$ is less than or equal to the Castelnuovo -Mumford regularity of $I$, in particular, this claim holds for F-pure and square free monomial ideals.
