A158763 Number of equivalence classes of near-normal sequences NN(2n). 0

Number of rows of Table 1 of Djokovic, pp.9-14, where "n" in the table is 2n as indexed in this sequence. We introduce a canonical form for near-normal sequences NN(n), and using it we enumerate the equivalence classes of such sequences for even n up to 30. These sequences are needed for Yang multiplication in the construction of longer T-sequences from base sequences. Near-normal sequences were introduced by C.H. Yang. They can be viewed as quadruples of binary sequences (A;B;C;D) where A and B have length n + 1, while C and D have length n, and n has to be even. By definition, the sequences A = a_1, a_2, . . ., a_n+1 and B = b_1, b_2, . . ., b_n+1 are related by the equalities b_i = (-1)^(i-1) for 1 <= i <= n and b_n+1 = -a_n+1. Moreover it is required that the sum of the non-periodic autocorrelation functions of the four sequences be a delta function. Examples of near-
