Jennifer Seberry Wallis, A note on amicable Hadamard matrices, Utilitas Mathematica, 3, (1973), 119-125.


The existence of Szekeres difference sets, X and Y, of size 2f with y E Y = -y E Y, where q = 4f + 1 is a prime power, q = 5 (mod 8) and q = p2 + 4, is demonstrated. This gives amicable Hadamard matrices of order 2(q + 1), and if 2q is also the order of a symmetric conference matrix, a regular symmetric Hadamard matrix of order 4q2 with constant diagonal.
