In this work we generalize the concept of covering radius, introducing the $r$-covering radii of a linear code. The first part of the work present several equivalent definitions, that explores different aspects of the subject: combinatorial, geometric and algebraic notions. We describe the connection of the generalized covering radii with generalized Hamming weights and produce some asymptotic bounds that shows its relevance for application to database linear querying.

Joint work with Dor Elimelech and Moshe Schwartz (Ben Gurion University, Israel)..
