(Invited Paper)
  • James L. Massey
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6338)


This paper gives a sampling of the results on Welch-Bound-Equality sequence sets that were presented in the keynote lecture on which this paper is based. Emphasis is placed on identities that lend themselves to use in the design and analysis of good sequence sets.
