This volumecontainstherefereedproceedingsoftheSixth International Conf- ence on Sequences and Their Applications (SETA 2010), held in Paris, France, September 13-17, 2010. The previous ?ve conferences were held in Singapore (RepublicofSingapore),Bergen(Norway),Seoul(SouthKorea),Beijing(China) and Lexington (USA). Topics of SETA include: – Randomness of sequences – Correlation (periodic and aperiodic types) and combinatorial aspects of - quences (di?erence sets) – Sequences with applications in coding theory and cryptography – Sequences over ?nite ?elds/rings/function ?elds – Linear and nonlinear feedback shift register sequences – Sequences for radar distance ranging, synchronization, identi?cation, and hardware testing – Sequences for wireless communication – Pseudorandom sequence generators – Boolean and vectorial functions for sequences, coding and/or cryptography – Multidimensional sequences and their correlation properties – Linear and nonlinear complexity of sequences The Technical Program Committee of SETA 2010 refereed 56 submitted - pers. Each paper was reviewed by at least 2 referees (at least 3 when an author was a TPC member) and the TPC selected 33 papers to be presented at the conference. In addition, we had 4 invited papers, byRobert Calderbank(Prin- ton University, USA), James Massey (retired from ETH Zurich, Switzerland), Jong-Seon No (Seoul National University, South Korea) and Arne Winterhof ¨ (Osterreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Austria). TheCo-chairsoftheTPCwereClaudeCarlet(Universit´ eParis8,France)and Alexander Pott (Otto-von-Guericke-Universit¨ at, Magdeburg, Germany).

This book contains survey papers and research papers by leading experts on sequences and their applications. It discusses both the theory of sequences and their applications in cryptography, coding theory, communications systems, numerical computation and computer simulation. Sequences have important applications in ranging systems, spread spectrum communication systems, multi-terminal system identification, code division multiply access communications systems, global positioning systems, software testing, circuit testing, computer simulation, and stream ciphers. The papers contained in this volume bring together experts from discrete mathematics, computer science and communications engineering, and help to bridge advances in these different areas.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Sequences and Their Applications, SETA 2014, held in Melbourne, VIC, Australia, in November 2014. The 24 full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 36 submissions. The papers have been organized in topical sections on Boolean functions, perfect sequences, correlation of arrays, relative difference sets, aperiodic correlation, pseudorandom sequences and stream ciphers, crosscorrelation of sequences, prime numbers in sequences, OFDM and CDMA, and frequency-hopping sequences.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Sequences and Their Applications, SETA 2012, held in Waterloo, Canada, in June 2012. The 28 full papers presented together with 2 invited papers in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 48 submissions. The papers are grouped in topical sections on perfect sequences; finite fields; boolean functions; Golomb 80th birthday session; linear complexity; frequency hopping; correlation of sequences; bounds on sequences, cryptography; aperiodic correlation; and Walsh transform.
This book covers novel research on construction and analysis of optimal cryptographic functions such as almost perfect nonlinear (APN), almost bent (AB), planar and bent functions. These functions have optimal resistance to linear and/or differential attacks, which are the two most powerful attacks on symmetric cryptosystems. Besides cryptographic applications, these functions are significant in many branches of mathematics and information theory including coding theory, combinatorics, commutative algebra, finite geometry, sequence design and quantum information theory. The author analyzes equivalence relations for these functions and develops several new methods for construction of their infinite families. In addition, the book offers solutions to two longstanding open problems, including the problem on characterization of APN and AB functions via Boolean, and the problem on the relation between two classes of bent functions.
Pseudorandom sequences have widespread applications, for instance, in spread spectrum, code division multiple access, optical and ultrawide band communication systems, as well as in ranging systems global positioning systems, circuit testing and stream ciphers. Such sequences also have strong ties to error-correcting codes. This volume contains survey and research papers on sequences and their applications. It brings together leading experts from discrete mathematics, computer science and communications engineering, and helps to bridge advances in these different areas. Papers in this volume discuss the theory of sequences and their applications in cryptography, coding theory, communications systems, numerical computation and computer simulation.
