In mathematics, the Johnson scheme, named after Selmer M. Johnson, is also known as the triangular association scheme. It consists of the set of all binary vectors X of length and weight n, such that .[1][2][3] Two vectors xy ∈ X are called ith associates if dist(xy) = 2i for i = 0, 1, ..., n. The eigenvalues are given by


and Ek(x) is an Eberlein polynomial defined by
