In [5] Raghavarao showed that if n = 2 (mod 4) and A is a {O, 1, -1} matrix satisfying AAt = (n 1) In. then n 1 = a2 b2 for a, b integers. In [4] van Lint and Seidel giving a proof modeled on a proof of the Witt cancellation theorem, proved more generally that if n is as above and A is a rational matrix satisfying AAt = kIn then k = q12 + q22 (q1, q2 E Q, the rational numbers). Consequently, if k is an integer then k = a2 + b2 for two integers a and b. In [1] we showed that if, in addition, A… Expand

A note on orthogonal designs in order eighty
This is a short note showing the existence of all twovariable designs in order 80 except possibly (13, 64) and (15, 62) which have not yet been construced. The designs are constructed using designsExpand
Orthogonal designs V: Orders divisible by eight
Constructions are given for orthogonal designs in orders divisible by eight. These are then used to show all two variable orthogonal designs exist in orders 24, 32 and 48. The existence of twoExpand
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
Some results on weighing matrices
It is shown that if q is a prime power then there exists a circulant weighing matrix of order q 2 + q + 1 with q 2 nonzero elements per row and column. This result allows the bound N to be lowered inExpand

A Journey of Discovery : Orthogonal Matrices and Wireless Communications
Real orthogonal designs were first introduced in the 1970’s, followed shortly by the introduction of complex orthogonal designs. These designs can be described simply as square matrices whose columnsExpand
A survey of orthogonal designs
This paper surveys orthogonal designs which are an overview of Baumert-Hall arrays, Hadamard matrices and weighing matrices. The known results are given and unsolved problems indicated. DisciplinesExpand
Some new weighing matrices using sequences with zero autocorrelation function
The skew weighing matrix conjecture for orders 2t is verified, proving the conjecture for t ≥ 3.13, t ≥ 5, and new results for 2t.15 are given. Expand


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
