Hi Smita,
As per my understanding, you want to calculate the branch number and hamming weight of any nxn binary matrix.
In general, Hamming weight of binary matrix is the count of non-zero elements in the matrix. To calculate the branch number of given matrix we need to find absolute maximum in Walsh transform of the matrix. Subtract the maximum absolute value from 2^(n-1) to obtain the branch number.
We can use suitable algorithm to find Walsh transform of the matrix such as Fast Walsh Hadamard transform (FWHT).
Here is the sample code for reference:
function weight = hamming_weight(matrix)
weight = sum(matrix(:));
function bn = branch_number(matrix)
n = size(matrix, 1);
transform = fwht(matrix); % Fast Walsh–Hadamard transform
abs_transform = abs(transform);
max_value = max(abs_transform(:));
bn = 2^(n-1) - floor(max_value);
% Example usage
matrix = [1 0 1; 0 1 0; 1 1 1];
weight = hamming_weight(matrix);
bn = branch_number(matrix);
For further reference, please check out the links to learn more about hamming weight and branch number.
I hope this helps!
