(2008) Do the Barker Codes End? [Study Group Report]



A Barker code is a binary code with k^th autocorrelation <= 1 for all nonzero k.

At the workshop, the Barker code group split into four non-disjoint subgroups:

- An "algebra group", who explored symmetries of the search space that preserve the autocorrelations' magnitude.
- A "computing group", who explored methods for quickly finding binary codes with very good autocorrelation properties.
- A "statistics group", who explored ways to quantify what has been empirically observed about autocorrelation in the search space S_2^N.
- A "continuous group", who explored a non-discrete analogue of the problem of finding sequences with good autocorrelations.
