Revision date


This package contains a program for constructing a Hadamard matrix of order m = 2e (qn + 1) where q is an odd prime, n is a positive integer, and e is any positive integer such that Mod[m, 4] = 0. The construction given by Paley in 1933 is used. The program is not optimized for storage and speed. The order m of the Hadamard matrix it produces is restricted to be less than 1000.
