Counting Points on Curves and Irreducible Polynomials over Finite Fields
Abstract:
For any integers n ≥ 3 and r ≥ 1 we present formule for the number of irreducible polynomials of degree n over the finite field F2^r where the coefficients of x^(n−1), x^(n−2) and x^(n−3) are zero. We will also apply our curved based techniques to some previous results and give them short proofs.
Our proofs involve counting the number of points on certain algebraic curves over finite fields.
