Abstract: Let $\chi $ be a nontrivial Dirichlet character modulo an odd prime $p$. Write

\begin{displaymath}S(a)=\sum \limits _{x=1}^{p-1}e(\frac{x+ax^{-1}}{p})=2\sqrt {p}\cos \theta (a). \end{displaymath}

We shall prove

\begin{displaymath}\sum \limits _{a=1}^{p-1}\chi (a)S(a)^{2}=\chi (-1)g(\chi )^{2}J(\chi ,\bar {\chi }^{2}) \end{displaymath}

and, for complex $\chi $,

\begin{displaymath}\vert\sum \limits _{a=1}^{p-1}\chi (a)\frac{\sin (k+1)\theta (a)}{\sin \theta (a)}\vert\leq c(k)\sqrt {p}, k>0, \end{displaymath}

where $c(k)$ is a constant depending only on $k$.
