Summary: 
We introduce an extension of Golay complementary sequences in which, for each sequence, there exists another sequence such that the sum of aperiodic autocorrelation functions of these two sequences for a given multiple L-shift (L≥1) is zero except for the zero shift. We call these sequences multiple L-shift complementary sequences. It is well-known that the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) value of any Golay complementary sequence is less than or equal to 2. In this paper, we show that the PAPR of each multiple L-shift complementary sequence is less than or equal to 2L. We also discuss other properties of the sequences and consider their construction.
