A Study on the Applications of Negacyclic Matrices in the Construction of Hadamard Matrices





Hadamard matrix, Negacyclic matrix, Circulant matrix, Orthogonal design


This article deals with the proper placement of negacyclic matrices as block matrices in a matrix so as to construct a Hadamard matrix. The article contains many new examples of suitable negacyclic matrices of such type with some new observations. The article also includes some negative results.
