Abstract : A complementary code pair has the property that its autocorrelation function contains no range sidelobes. This property makes complementary codes attractive for use in signal waveform design for detection and tracking systems. An extensive list of the properties of these codes has been formulated by M. J. Golay and additions were made by S. Jauregui. However, the ambiguity functions of complementary codes have not been previously formulated. This thesis considers the ambiguity functions of complementary codes for two cases: narrow-band analysis and wideband analysis. (Author)
