Davis, James A.; Jedwab, Jonathan


Keyword(s): relative difference sets; recursive; building sets; characters

Abstract: We recursively construct a new family of (26d+4, 8, 26d+4, 26d+1) semi-regular relative difference sets in abelian groups G relative to an elementary abelian subgroup U. The initial case d = 0 of the recursion comprises examples of (16,8,16,2) relative difference sets for four distinct pairs (G, U). Notes: James A.
