Correlation of binary sequence families derived from the multiplicative characters of finite fields

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, new constructions of the binary sequence families of period $q-1$ with large family size and low correlation, derived from multiplicative characters of finite fields for odd prime powers, are proposed. For $m ≥ 2$, the maximum correlation magnitudes of new sequence families $\mathcal{S}_m$ are bounded by $(2m-2)\sqrt{q}+2m+2$, and the family sizes of $\mathcal{S}_m$ are given by $q-1$ for $m=2$, $2(q-1)-1$ for $m=3$, $(q^2-1)q^{\frac{m-4}{2}}$ for $m$ even, $m>2$, and $2(q-1)q^{\frac{m-3}{2}}$ for $m$ odd, $m>3$. It is shown that the known binary Sidel'nikov-based sequence families are equivalent to the new constructions for the case $m=2$.
