Main matrix consists the blocks with circulant matrices. The two circulant structure – it's too universal. The set of symmetry A, D and some tied pair-sequences of (B, C) and (E, F), it has enough big quantity of invariants to describe conference matrices iff n–1 is prime. The private line of orders, it is oriented on the C66. This matrix absence is a special question of theory. We observe a line of multi-circulant matrices with orders n=2·3·k, k – integer 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15.., it covers orders 6, 18, 34, 42, 54, (66!?), (70), 90, ...

THE SAMPLES OF CONFERENCE MATRICES

The solution has the pair-sequences (B, C=flip(±B)) and (E, F=flip(±E)). It leads to the following samples of multi-circulant matrices:

Circulant matrices C6 and C18

Circulant matrices C30 and C42

Circulant matrices C54

THE SAMPLES OF CONFERENCE MATRICES

The solution has the pair-sequences, C-secuence is shifted accordingly B to the left in (B, C) and F-secuence is shifted accordingly E to the right in (E, F). It could be any shifts to any sides, need they were different. Matrix C54 looks like non reachable.

Circulant matrix C6

Circulant matrices C18 and C30

Circulant matrices C42 (3 shifts) and C42 (4 shifts)
