On finite pseudorandom sequences of k symbols.

In earlier papers the authors introduced and studied the measures of pseudorandomness for finite binary sequences. In this paper, they extend this theory to sequences of k symbols. They also construct a "good" pseudorandom sequence of k symbols, and they test it for pseudorandomness.

Keywords : pseudorandom sequences, correlation, character sums.
