Positive solutions for nonlinear fractional differential equations with coefficient that changes sign. (English) Zbl 1152.34304

Summary: Let \(f: F^n_2\to F_2\) be a Boolean function. Let \(W_f(a)= \sum_{x\in F^n_2} f(x)(-1)^{\langle a,x\rangle}\) denote the Walsh-Fourier transform of \(f\), here \(a\in F^n_2\). By \(f^{-1}(1)\) denote the set of all binary vectors of length \(n\), on which \(f\) gets the value 1. The graph \(G_f= (F^n_2, E)\) with the set of edges given as \(E= \{(a,b)\mid a\oplus b\in f^{-1}(1)\}\) is the Cayley graph of \(F^n_2\) with respect to the set \(f^{-1}(1)\).
Using these Cayley graphs for the representation of Boolean functions, the author studies the value of special product of Walsh-Fourier coefficients for an arbitrary Boolean function. The formula for such a product is given. There are given also applications of the results to the extremal nonlinear Boolean functions and to the calculating covering radii of Reed-Muller codes.
