Almost supplementary difference sets and quaternary sequences with optimal autocorrelation. (English) Zbl 1443.05024
Summary: We introduce almost supplementary difference sets (ASDS). For odd \(m\), certain ASDS in \(\mathbb Z_m\) that have amicable incidence matrices are equivalent to quaternary sequences of odd length \(m\) with optimal autocorrelation. As one consequence, if \(2m - 1\) is a prime power, or \(m \equiv 1\) mod 4 is prime, then ASDS of this kind exist. We also explore connections to optimal binary sequences and group cohomology.
