The fact that the Fourier characters $\chi_{\gamma} : {\mathbb F}_2^n \to \{-1,1\}$ form a group isomorphic to ${\mathbb F}_2^n$ is not a coincidence; the analogous result holds for any finite abelian group and is a special case of the theory of Pontryagin duality in harmonic analysis. We will see further examples of this in Chapter [...]
