  journal={Australas. J Comb.},
We give algorithms and constructions for mathematical and computer searches which allow us to establish the existence of W(4n, 4n - 2) and W (4n, 2n - 1) for many orders 4n less than 4000. We compare these results with the orders for which W(4n, 4n) and W(4n, 2n) are known. We use new algorithms based on the theory

Cyclotomic integers and finite geometry
The most powerful method for the study of finite geometries with regular or quasiregular automorphism groups G is to translate their definition into an equation over the integral group ring 2[G] andExpand
An experimental search and new combinatorial designs via a generalisation of cyclotomy
Cyclotomy can be used to construct a variety of combinatorial designs, for example, supplementary difference sets, weighing matrices and T -matrices. These designs may be obtained by using linearExpand

This work extends the usual concept of multipliers to group rings with cyclotomic integers as coefficients and combines it with the field descent method and rational idempotents to develop new non-existence results. Expand
Bijections Between Group Rings Preserving Character Sums
This work exhibits some, in general nonhomomorphic, bijections between finite groups which preserve the absolute value of character sums. Expand
A survey on the skew energy of oriented graphs
The skew energy of an oriented graph was introduced by Adiga, Balakrishnan and So in 2010, as one of various generalizations of the energy of an undirected graph. Let G be a simple undirected graph,Expand
Some Infinite Series of Weighing Matrices From Hadamard Matrices


An infinite family of skew-weighing matrices
We verify the skew weighing matrix conjecture for orders 2t·7, t≥3 a positive integer, by showing that orthogonal designs (1,k) exist for all k=0,1,…,2t·7−1 in order 2t·7.
The skew - weighing matrix conjecture
We review the history of the skew-weighing matrix conjecture and show that there exist skew-symmetric weighing matrices W (21.2t, k) for all k=0,l,.....,21.2t I, t ≥ 4 a positive integer. Hence thereExpand

A weighing matrix W = W(n,k) of order n and weight k is a square matrix of order n, with entries 0, +1 aud -1 which satisfies WWT = kIn. Tools such as Smith Normal Form, profile, maximum integer andExpand

Orthogonal (0,1,-1) matrices
We study the conjecture: There exists a square (0,l,-l)-matrix W = W(w,k) of order w satisfying WWT= kIw for all k = 0, 1,..., w when w = 0 (mod 4). We prove the conjecture is true for 4, 8, 12, 16,Expand
Constructing Hadamard matrices from orthogonal designs
The Hadamard conjecture is that hadamard matrices exist for all orders 1,2, 4t where t ~ 1 is an integer and the results obtained strongly support the conjecture. Expand
