Why Study Higher Dimensional?

  • Shlichta, 1979, said: “proper higher dimensional matrices may find application in error-correcting codes, where their hierarchy of orthogonalities permit a variety of checking procedures. Other types of Hadamard matrices may be of use in security codes on the basis of their resemblance to random binary matrices”.

  • Communication encoding uses frequency, phase, time, amplitude, polarity (light) to increase bandwidth; believe we can use higher dimensions to augment these

  • Applications in spectroscopy (see Horadam)


Examples of propriety

  • Shlichta’s , de Launey’s, Yang’s and Hammer&Seberry’s higher dimensional Hadamard matrices can be proper: that is all the 2-dimensional subspaces are orthogonal i.e. Hadamard matrices

  • Higher n-dimensional Hadamard matrices made from Walsh functions are not proper in any dimension smaller than n


Examples of 2^3 Hadamard matrices

  • Shlichta gave a construction for 2^n


Shlichta 1979

  • In his beautiful paper on “Higher dimensional matrices” Shlichta constructed higher dimensional matrices of side 2 which are orthogonal…but what does orthogonal mean?

  • Proper: every two dimensional subspace is an Hadamard matrix…this works for complex, jacket, Butson, weighing matrices, and orthogonal designs

  • Propriety: when the k dimensional subspace in direction m is orthogonal that is the k-1 dimensional subspaces are super imposed


Example from Hammer and Seberry

  • From IEEE


Statement of de Launey and Yang’s construction


Example of de Launey’s and Yang’s construction in higher dimensions


Higher Dimensional Version Example


Higher Dimensional Version Example


Example of Hammer & Seberry’s difference set developed construction

  • This only applies to Menon difference sets including Ming-yuan Xia’s splendid work

  • Kathy Horadam & C Lin extended this construction to any group developed Hadamard matrices and all co-cyclic Hadamard matrices: they extended perfect binary arrays


Example of Seberry & Xia’s difference set developed construction in higher dimensions


Hammer & Seberry: Other Examples


Comparison of efficiency of construction

  • Higher dimensional matrices via group development will be faster to construct than the de Launey-Yang construction but

  • The group developed higher dimensional Hadamard matrices depend on difference sets and Menon difference sets have been hard to find: but we can use them for near orthogonal higher dimensional matrices




What if we change orthogonal to near orthogonal?

  • de Launey and Levin were looking at this problem in 2009

  • Windpassinger, Pertsch, Cioppa have more recently looked at near orthogonal higher dimensional matrices for codes, diffraction and experimental design


Near orthogonal and higher dimensional: I

  • Take any proper higher dimensional Hadamard matrix and remove one coordinate from each direction. The resulting matrix will have had either (1,1) or (1, -1) or (-1,1) or (-1,-1) removed from the inner product of any two rows in a 2-dimensional plane. Thus we will have near orthogonality for any such pair

  • However this may be very time consuming or even difficult to construct, repair or analyse…


Near orthogonal and higher dimensional: II

  • The group developed construction from difference sets other than Menon difference sets

  • Use Paley, Stanton-Sprott and Singer difference sets with parameters 2-(4t-1,2t-1,t-1). These can be group developed for 4t-1 any odd prime power to get near orthogonal higher dimensional matrices

  • Using group developed 2 x 2 matrices we can use the Hammer-Seberry construction to extend to any number of dimensions; we note that in some pairs of dimensions there will be n^2 correlation but other pairs are fine


Example using difference sets


Near orthogonal and higher

dimensional: III

  • Use the Hammer and Seberry construction to make Williamson Hadamard into high dimensions.

  • With appropriate definitions this can also be extended to Williamson type, Ito’s, Goethal-Seidel type, Wallis-Whiteman type, Xia type and others to form higher dimensional matrices…then use deletion of any coordinate as above

  • It is easy to see how this can be used for Hadamard error codes with 8t codewords of length 4t, distance 2t and dimension 8t (we have yet to relate this to Reed-Solomon codes)


Example from Hammer & Seberry


Near orthogonal and higher dimensional: IV

  • Use the ideas of the Hammer & Seberry for the Williamson construction extended to high dimensions but with

    • sequences with small correlation

    • two supplementary difference sets extended to a group generated form

    • Complex sequences

    • Higher dimensional quaternion based codes


Applications to signal processing

  • The high dimensional orthogonal matrix can be used to encode the whole of a large file. For example, a database or a video with error-correction for single errors and burst errors by choice of the encoding matrix


More uses and applications

  • Any thing that previously used zero autocorrelation can be adapted to near zero autocorrelation

  • Applications in spectroscopy, acoustics, communication, security(?)....
