Chords in a circle and linear algebra over GF(2)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A common framework for the two concepts of the title is developed to yield an alternative proof to a theorem of Cohn and Lempel relating the number of orbits of a product of a full cycle by disjoint transpositions to the rank over GF(2) of the associated chord-intersection-matrix.
