Title: Quasiorthogonal dimension

Abstract:

Joint results with Paul C. Kainen on exponentional growth of the number of quasiorthogonal vectors with increasing dimension of ambient Euclidean spaces will be presented. A proof based of graph theory will be given. Connections to the Johnson-Lindenstrauss flattening lemma and the central paradox of coding theory will be discussed.
