@article{Turyn1984ASC, title={A Special Class of Williamson Matrices and Difference Sets}, author={Richard J. Turyn}, journal={J. Comb. Theory, Ser. A}, year={1984}, volume={36}, pages={111-115} }

Abstract A construction is given of a very special class of Hadamard matrices. This yields Hadamard matrices of the Williamson kind and difference sets of order 4 · 32m.
