Abstract: Binary msequences are maximallength sequences generated by shift registers of length m, that are employed in navigation, radar, and spreadspectrum communication. It is well known that given a pair of distinct /«sequences, the crosscorrelation function must take on at least three values. This correspondence addresses a conjecture made by Helleseth in 1976, that if rn is a power of 2, then there are no pairs of binary msequences with a 3valued crosscorrelation function. This conjecture is proved under the assumption that the three correlation values are symmetric about 1. © 1996 IEEE.
