```Hello,

If you take a look into
generation of the sequence. Well, in LTE (in P-SS) we  use 3 sequences of
length 63 (N=63) and roots u=25,29,34.
All books say that these sequences have an ideal periodic autocorrelation
function and a constant periodic cross-correlation equal to 1/sqrt(N)

Let's take the Circular Cross Correlation function of
"http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/4810" and check all
this:

I get an ideal periodic autocorrelation for all sequences and a constant
periodic cross-correlation equal to (1/sqrt(N))=(0.126) for the pair of
roots 25-29 and 29-34. But for the pair 25-34 the cross-correlation is not
constant and its maximum value is three times 0.126.
Can you find the problem? I'm getting crazy!
Thank you very much!

PS: This is my code to generate the sequences:

for n=0:62
seq(n+1)=exp(-j*(pi*root*n*(n+1))/63);
end

```

The different result is likely due to the fact that the difference
between 25 and 34 (that is, 9) is not relatively prime to the
period (63) of the sequences whereas the other two differences
(4 and 5 respectively) *are* relatively prime to 63.  For a related
phenomenon, see the paper

(http://www.ifp.uiuc.edu/~sarwate/pubs/Sarwate79Bounds.pdf)

(Note, the last time I checked, the version of this paper that is
provided by IEEExplore is missing a page; now let the
semi-annual flame war about IEEExplore start!)

Good catch.
