Linear complementary dual (LCD) codes are linear codes that intersect with their dual codes trivially. We study the largest minimum weight d2(n,k) among all binary LCD [n,k] codes and the largest minimum weight d3(n,k) among all ternary LCD [n,k] codes. The largest minimum weights d2(n,5) and d3(n,4) are partially determined. We also determine the largest minimum weights d2(n,n−5), d3(n,n−i) for i∈{2,3,4}, and d3(n,k) for n∈{11,12,…,19}.
