Summary: We classify all the cocyclic Butson Hadamard matrices \(\mathrm{BH}(n,p)\) of order \(n\) over the \(p\)th roots of unity for an odd prime \(p\) and \(np\leq 100\). That is, we compile a list of matrices such that any cocyclic \(\mathrm{BH}(n,p)\) for these \(n\), \(p\) is equivalent to exactly one element in the list. Our approach encompasses non-existence results and computational machinery for Butson and generalized Hadamard matrices that are of independent interest.
