$Z_2^5$ means that you are working in $GF(2)^5$. $GF(2)$ is the Finite Field with two elements: 0 and 1 with the addition and multiplications defined: $0 + 0 = 0\\ 0 + 1 = 1\\ 1 + 0 = 1\\ 1 + 1 = 0$ It is equivalent to XOR. $0 \times 0 = 0\\ 0 \times 1 = 0\\ 1 \times 0 = 0\\ 1 \times 1 = 1$ It is equivalent to AND. the $ ^5$ is the dimension of the space ...
