Abstract

We consider the polynomials of the form $P(x)=x^k-\gamma \mathrm{Tr}(x)$ over $\mathbb{F}_{q^n}$ for $n\geq 2$. We show that $P(x)$ is not a permutation of $\mathbb{F}_{q^n}$ in the case $\gcd(k, q^n-1)>1$. Our proof uses an absolutely irreducible curve over $\mathbb{F}_{q^n}$ and the number of rational points on it.
