Bent functions over the finite fields of an odd characteristic received a lot of attention of late years. In CeAYmelioglu et al. (J Comb Theory Ser A 119:420-429, 2012), CeAYmelioglu and Meidl (Des Codes Cryptogr 66:231-242, 2013), an efficient method of construction of weakly regular and non-weakly regular bent functions defined over a finite field with odd characteristic is presented. In this paper, we give an adaptation of this method to the ring of integers modulo , where p is an odd prime and m is a positive integer. We emphasize that different results than the results of the finite field case are obtained in every application process. First, we give a method that constructs bent functions using plateaued functions by increasing the dimension. Then, in order to give concrete examples, we compute Walsh spectrum of some specific quadratic functions defined over the ring of integers modulo and apply the construction method on these functions. There are notable differences between the cases when m is odd and even. Also, we explain how to determine weakly regular and non-weakly regular bent functions among the bent functions that are constructed by the method.

 On obtaining regular, weakly regular and non-weakly regular bent functions over finite fields and ring of integers modulo Pm Çelik, Dilek; Özbudak, Ferruh; Department of Cryptography (2014) Bent functions over the finite fields of odd characteristics received a lot of attention of late years. Over the finite fields with characteristic 2, a method is given to construct bent functions using near bent functions. This method is then generalized to finite fields with p elements for an odd prime p by Cesmelioglu et al. The idea is constructing a bent function F by glueing the near-bent functions in such a way that Walsh spectrum of F do not include zero value. This can be achieved by combining the n...
 Studies on non-weakly regular bent functions and related structures Pelen, Rumi Melih; Özbudak, Ferruh; Department of Mathematics (2020) Interest in bent functions over finite fields arises both from mathematical theory and practical applications. There has been lots of literature addressing various properties of bent functions. They have a number of applications consisting of coding theory, cryptography, and sequence designs. They’re divided into four subclasses: regular bent functions that are contained within the class of weakly regular bent functions that are contained within the class of dual-bent functions. Additionally, there are non-...
 An identification theorem for groups of finite Morley rank and even type Berkman, A; Borovik, AV (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-15) The paper contains a construction of a definable BN-pair in a simple group of finite Morley rank and even type with a sufficiently good system of 2-local parabolic subgroups. This provides 'the final identification theorem' for simple groups of finite Morley rank and even type.
 A model for the computation of quantum billiards with arbitrary shapes Erhan, Inci M.; Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01) An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a three-dimensional quantum billiard system whose boundary is defined by an arbitrary analytic function is introduced. The method is based on a coordinate transformation and an expansion in spherical harmonics. The effectiveness is verified and confirmed by a numerical example, which is a billiard system depending on a parameter.
 A generalized construction for perfect autocorrelation sequences boztaş, serdar; kahraman, seda; Özbudak, Ferruh; TEKİN, EDA (2015-06-19) In this paper we generalize a previous construction in order to design perfect autocorrelation sequences over the so-called PSK+ constellation defined by Boztas, and Udaya [2]. We give a number theoretic criterion for the existence of the new sequences with perfect autocorrelation, and discuss some preliminary numerical results on their aperiodic correlations and merit factors.
