The ring R = Fp m + uFp m has precisely p m (p m -1) units which are of the forms γ and α + uβ, where 0 ≠ α, β, γ ϵ Fp m . Using generator polynomial structures of constacyclic codes of length p s over R, the Hamming and symbol pair distance distributions of all such codes are completely determined. As examples, we provide some good codes with better parameters than the known ones
