New infinite families of p-ary weakly regular bent functions

The characterization and construction of bent functions ar e challenging problems. The paper generalizes the construc tions of Boolean bent functions by Mesnager [33], Xu et al. [40] and p-ary bent functions by Xu et al. [41] to the construction of p-ary weakly regular bent functions and presents new infinite fami lies of p-ary weakly regular bent functions… CONTINUE READING
