complex Hadamard matrices - a catalogue (since 2006)

by Wojciech Bruzda, Wojciech Tadej and Karol Życzkowski


including Butson-type matrices

Butson type matrices are listed in a dephased, log-Hadamard forms.

For any representant of an affine Hadmard family $H(a)=F\circ{\rm EXP}(i a)$ being a Butson type \(H(a)\in H(q, N)\) there exists another parameter \(b=2\pi / k q:k\in\mathbb{Z}\) such that \(H(b)\in H(q k, N)\). Due to this fact the set of all Butsons is countable but not finite. Thus from an affine family of complex Hadamard matrices we provide only the Butson representant with the minimal factor \(k\).
