#### New constructions of asymptotically optimal codebooks via character sums over a local ring

##### Liqin Qian, Xiwang Cao, Wei Lu, Xia Wu

In this paper, we present explicit description on the additive characters, multiplicative characters and Gauss sums over a local ring. As an application, based on the additive characters and multiplicative characters satisfying certain conditions, two new constructions of complex codebooks over a local ring are introduced. With these two constructions, we obtain two families of codebooks achieving asymptotically optimal with respect to the Welch bound. It's worth mentioning that the codebooks constructed in this paper have new parameters.
