Construction of infinite unimodular sequences with zero autocorrelation


Unimodular waveforms x are constructed on the integers with the property that the autocorrelation of x is one at the origin and zero elsewhere. There are three different constructions: exponentials of the form e2π in θ , sequences taken from roots of unity, and sequences constructed from the elements of real Hadamard matrices. The first is expected and elementary and the second is based on the construction of Wiener. The third is the most intricate and is really one of a family of distinct but structurally similar waveforms. A natural error estimate problem is posed for the last construction. The analytic solution is not as useful as the simulations because of the inherent counting problems in the construction.
