Generalized Cohn functions on Galois rings

Main Article Content

Young Ho Jang


Let ${\mathbb F}_q$ be the finite field with $q=p^m$ elements. A complex valued Cohn function defined on ${\mathbb F}_q$ is introduced in [1]. In this paper we define generalized Cohn functions on Galois rings and investigate their properties.
