Fourier transforms and bent functions on faithful actions of finite abelian groups. (English) Zbl 1358.43004
Let \(G\) be a finite abelian group acting faithfully on a finite set \(X\).The authors are concerned with the Fourier analysis on \(X\), as a generalization of the classical Fourier analysis on \(G\). The former is used to study the bentness and perfect nonlinearity of functions on \(X\) by their own Fourier transforms on the \(G\)-dual set of \(X\). Illustrative examples complete the study.
