Ongoing Research and Projects

Generalization of Hadamard Matrices in Graph Theory

Hadamard matrices and their applications have steadily and rapidly grown during the past 2 decades. Hadamard matrices which were originally introduced by Sylvester, form an important class of matrices, with an active area of research in both theoretical and applied fields of the Sciences. In pure mathematics, Hadamard matrices are of interest due to their intrinsic beauty as well as their applications to areas such as Combinatorics, Information Theory, Optics, Operator Algebras and Quantum Mechanics. Hadamard matrices have been generalized in many different ways by several researchers. One such generalization is generalized Hadamard Matrices. In this project, we focus on relationship between Hadamard matrices, quaternary complex Hadamard matrices and generalized Hadamard matrices, and corresponding graphs since the area of Graph Theory provides an important role in numerous applications.
