We investigate the theory of the finite HeisenbergWeyl group in relation to the development of adaptive radar and to the construction of spreading sequences and errorcorrecting codes in communications. We contend that this group can form the basis for the representation of the radar environment in terms of operators on the space of waveforms. We also demonstrate, following recent developments in the theory of errorcorrecting codes, that the finite HeisenbergWeyl groups provide a unified basis for the construction of useful waveforms/sequences for radar, communications, and the theory of errorcorrecting codes.

A classical problem of digital sequence design, first studied in the 1950s but still not well understood, is to determine those binary sequences whose aperiodic autocorrelations are collectively small according to some suitable measure. The merit factor is an important such measure, and the problem of determining the best value of the merit factor of long binary sequences has resisted decades of attack by mathematicians and communications engineers. In equivalent guise, the determination of the best asymptotic merit factor is an unsolved problem in complex analysis proposed by Littlewood in the 1960s that until recently was studied along largely independent lines. The same problem is also studied in theoretical physics and theoretical chemistry as a notoriously difficult combinatorial optimisation problem. The best known value for the asymptotic merit factor has remained unchanged since 1988. However recent experimental and theoretical results strongly suggest a possible improvement. This survey describes the development of our understanding of the merit factor problem by bringing together results from several disciplines, and places the recent results within their historical and scientific framework. 1
On Cosets of the Generalized FirstOrder Reed–Muller Code with Low PMEPR
, 2006

Golay sequences are well suited for use as codewords in orthogonal frequencydivision multiplexing (OFDM) since their peaktomean envelope power ratio (PMEPR) in qary phaseshift keying (PSK) modulation is at most 2.

Golay sequences are well suited for use as codewords in orthogonal frequencydivision multiplexing (OFDM) since their peaktomean envelope power ratio (PMEPR) in qary phaseshift keying (PSK) modulation is at most 2. It is known that a family of polyphase Golay sequences of length 2m organizes in m!/2 cosets of a qary generalization of the firstorder Reed–Muller code, RMq(1, m). In this paper a more general construction technique for cosets of RMq(1, m) with low PMEPR is established. These cosets contain socalled nearcomplementary sequences. The application of this theory is then illustrated by providing some construction examples. First, it is shown that the m!/2 cosets of RMq(1, m) comprised of Golay sequences just arise as a special case. Second, further families of cosets of RMq(1, m) with maximum PMEPR between 2 and 4 are presented, showing that some previously unexplained phenomena can now be understood within a unified framework. A lower bound on the PMEPR of cosets of RMq(1, m) is proved as well, and it is demonstrated that the upper bound on the PMEPR is tight in many cases. Finally it is shown that all upper bounds on the PMEPR of cosets of RMq(1, m) also hold for the peaktoaverage power ratio (PAPR) under the Walsh–Hadamard transform.
AMBIGUITY FUNCTION AND FRAME THEORETIC PROPERTIES OF PERIODIC ZERO AUTOCORRELATION WAVEFORMS

Elementary number theoretic considerations illustrate that peaks in Au are not stable under small pertubations in its domain. Further, it is proved that the analysis of vectorvalued CAZA ..."

Constant Amplitude Zero Autocorrelation (CAZAC) waveforms u are analyzed in terms of the ambiguity function Au. Elementary number theoretic considerations illustrate that peaks in Au are not stable under small pertubations in its domain. Further, it is proved that the analysis of vectorvalued CAZAC waveforms depends on methods from the theory of frames. Finally, techniques are introduced to characterize the structure of Au, to compute u in terms of Au, and to evaluate MSE for CAZAC waveforms.

Constructions and nonexistence conditions for multidimensional Golay complementary array pairs are reviewed. A construction for a ddimensional Golay array pair from a (d + 1)dimensional Golay array pair is given. This is used to explain and expand previously known constructive and nonexistence results in the binary case.
