Using a spread ofPG(3, p) and certain projective two-weight codes, we give a general construction of Hadamard difference sets in groupsH×(Zp)4, whereHis either the Klein 4-group or the cyclic group of order 4, andpis an odd prime. In the casep?3 (mod 4), we use an ovoidal fibration ofPG(3, p) to construct Hadamard difference sets, this construction includes Xia's construction of Hadamard difference sets as a special case. In the casep?1 (mod 4), we construct new reversible Hadamard difference… Expand
On the Existence of Abelian Hadamard Difference Sets and a New Family of Difference Sets
We present a construction of Hadamard difference sets in abelian groups of order 4p4n, whose Sylowp-subgroups are elementary. By a standard composition procedure, we can now conclude that (4h2,Expand

We introduce a uniform technique for constructing a family of symmetric designs with parameters (v(qm+1-1)/(q-1), kqm,λqm), where m is any positive integer, (v, k, λ) are parameters of an abelianExpand
Paley type partial difference sets in non p-groups
TLDR
Two infinite families of negative Latin square type partial difference sets in groups of the form of the Stanton-Sprott family are constructed, which provides new constructions of Hadamard matrices and implies the existence of many new strongly regular graphs including some that are conference graphs.

A New Method for Constructing Williamson Matrices
For every prime power q ≡ 1 (mod 4) we prove the existence of (q; x, y)-partitions of GF(q) with q=x2+4y2 for some x, y, which are very useful for constructing SDS, DS and Hadamard matrices. WeExpand
A Unified Approach to Difference Sets with gcd(V,N) > 1
The five known families of difference sets whose parameters (v, k, λ; n) satisfy the condition gcd(v, n) > 1 are the McFarland, Spence, Davis-Jedwab, Hadamard and Chen families. We survey recent workExpand
