Abstract: In this paper, we study some properties of cyclic and constacyclic codes over the ring R = Z4 + uZ4 + vZ4 where u2 = uv = vu = 0. The generator polynomials and minimal spanning set for cyclic codes over R are determined. Further, (1 + 2u) - constacyclic codes are considered and find the cyclic, quasi-cyclic and permutation equivalent to a QC code over Z4 as the Gray images of (1 + 2u) - constacyclic codes over R.

Keywords: cyclic code; minimal spanning set; constacyclic code; quasi-cyclic code; Gray map.
