On a generalized combinatorial conjecture involving addition $\mod 2^k - 1$
Gérard Cohen and Jean-Pierre Flori
Abstract: In this note, we give a simple proof of the combinatorial conjecture proposed by Tang, Carlet and Tang, based on which they constructed two classes of Boolean functions with many good cryptographic properties.
We also give more general properties about the generalization of the conjecture they propose.

Note: Corrected wrong formulation of our slight extension to the TCT conjecture. In particular, the TD conjecture is NOT included in the proved cases.
