**What is Hadamard sequence?**

May 2020) The Hadamard code is an error-correcting code named after Jacques Hadamard that is used for error detection and correction when transmitting messages over very noisy or unreliable channels. In 1971, the code was used to transmit photos of Mars back to Earth from the NASA space probe Mariner 9.

**What is Hadamard product used for?**

Hadamard Product (Element -wise Multiplication) Hadamard product is used in image compression techniques such as JPEG. It is also known as Schur product after German Mathematician, Issai Schur. Hadamard Product is used in LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory) cells of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs).

Up to equivalence, there is a unique Hadamard matrix of orders 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12. There are 5 inequivalent matrices of order 16, 3 of order 20, 60 of order 24, and 487 of order 28. Millions of inequivalent matrices are known for orders 32, 36, and 40.

### What do the suffixes mean in a Hadamard matrix?

had.n.nameindicates a Hadamard matrix of order n and type “name”. The matrices are usually given as n rows each containing n +’s and -‘s (with no spaces). In many cases there are further rows giving the name of the matrix and the order of its automorphism group. What the suffixes mean: od = orthogonal design construction method

**What is the Paley construction of Hadamard matrix?**

In 1933, Raymond Paley discovered the Paley construction, which produces a Hadamard matrix of order q + 1 when q is any prime power that is congruent to 3 modulo 4 and that produces a Hadamard matrix of order 2 ( q + 1) when q is a prime power that is congruent to 1 modulo 4. His method uses finite fields .

**What is the difference between regular and circulant Hadamard matrix?**

Regular Hadamard matrices are real Hadamard matrices whose row and column sums are all equal. A necessary condition on the existence of a regular n × n Hadamard matrix is that n be a perfect square. A circulant matrix is manifestly regular, and therefore a circulant Hadamard matrix would have to be of perfect square order.
