Frequency hopping multiple access (FHMA) spread-spectrum communication systems employing multiple frequency-shift keying (MFSK) as data modulation technique are investigated from a combinatorial approach. A correspondence between optimal frequency hopping (FH) sequences and partition-type difference packings is first established. By virtue of this(More)
Frequency hopping spread spectrum and direct sequence spread spectrum are two main spread coding technologies in communication systems. Frequency hopping sequences are needed in frequency hopping code-division multiple-access (FH-CDMA) systems. In this paper, four algebraic and a combinatorial constructions of optimal sets of frequency hopping sequences(More)
New improved upper and lower bounds on the maximum size of a symmetric or arbitrary conflict-avoiding code of length n = 4 m for three active users are proved. Furthermore, direct constructions for optimal conflict-avoiding codes of length n = 4 m and m equiv 2 (mod 4) for three active users are provided.
Direct constructions for optimal conflict-avoiding codes of length <formula formulatype="inline"><tex Notation="TeX">$n \equiv 4 \pmod{8}$</tex></formula> and weight 3 are provided by bringing in a new concept called an extended odd sequence. Constructions for those odd sequences are also given in this paper. As a consequence, with previously known results,(More)
A directed BIB design DB(k, A; v) is a BIB design B(k, 2A; v) in which the blocks are transitively ordered k-tuples and each ordered pair of elements occurs in exactly A blocks. A nested directed BIB design NDB(k, A; v) of form IT2<n<k-l(njn, An)in is a DB(k, A; v) where each block contains E2<n<k-l injn mutually disjoint subblocks, injn subblocks of which(More)
