Generalizations of Bent Functions. A Survey

Natalia Tokareva

Abstract: Bent functions (Boolean functions with extreme nonlinearity properties) are actively studied for their numerous applications in cryptography, coding theory, and other fields. New statements of problems lead to a large number of generalizations of the bent functions many of which remain little known to the experts in Boolean functions. In this article, we offer a systematic survey of them.
