Hadamard Matrices Modulo 5

In this paper, we introduce modular symmetric designs and use them to study the existence of Hadamard matrices modulo 5. We prove that there exist 5-modular Hadamard matrices of order n if and only if inline image or inline image. In particular, this solves the 5-modular version of the Hadamard conjecture.
