## Daniel J. KatzAssistant ProfessorDepartment of Mathematics California State University, Northridge I investigate problems in number theory and discrete mathematics, often motivated by information theory. Both algebra and analysis play crucial roles. Some of my recent work includes a proof for finite fields of characteristic 2 and 3 of a conjecture of Helleseth (1976) concerning cross-correlations of maximal linear recursive sequences (equivalent to a conjecture about Weil sums of binomials or a statement about weights in certain error- correcting codes). In a similar area, Philippe Langevin and I proved a conjecture of Dobbertin, Helleseth, Kumar, and Martinsen (2001) that asserts the existence of an infinite a three-valued family of Weil sums of binomials. This is the tenth infinite family discovered since 1966. Jonathan Jedwab, Kai-Uwe Schmidt, and I have settled con- jectures of Høholdt-Jensen (1988), Borwein-Choi-Jedwab (2004), Parker (2005), Yu-Gong (2007), and Jedwab-Schmidt (2010) on the asymptotic L ^{4} norm of certain families of Littlewoodpolynomials. In doing so, we break a record (which stood for over two decades) for the lowest known asymptotic mean-square autocorrelation for binary sequences. |
