In mathematics, in particular in functional analysis, the Rademacher system, named after Hans Rademacher, is an incomplete orthogonal system of functions on the unit interval of the following form:

\( \{ t \mapsto r_{n}(t)=\sgn ( \sin 2^{n+1} \pi t ) ; t \in [0,1], n \in \N \}. \)

The Rademacher system is stochastically-independent, and is closely related to the Walsh system. Specifically, the Walsh system can be constructed as a product of Rademacher functions.
