Introduction: The work of Jim Massey and his research students has had a significant impact on the cryptographic research here at Royal Holloway. One of Jim’s many major attributes is his willingness to encourage other people’s research and we are all very grateful for our close collaboration with him. Consequently when one of us was invited to contribute to this volume it seemed appropriate for us to combine and produce this ‘joint effort’.
In this paper we summarize the results of four separate research topics studied by the group. They can all be ‘linked’ to Jim through his work on binary sequences but, more importantly, each of the authors readily acknowledges the personal contribution that Jim afforded by informal conversations and inspiring lectures.
