An efficient characterization of a family of hyperbent functions with multiple trace terms
Jean-Pierre Flori and Sihem Mesnager
Abstract: Lisoněk recently reformulated the characterization of Charpin and Gong of a large class of hyperbent functions in terms of cardinalities of curves.
In this note, we show that such a reformulation can be naturally extended to a distinct family of functions proposed by Mesnager.
Doing so, a polynomial time and space test is obtained to test the hyperbentness of functions in this family.
Finally we show how this reformulation can be transformed to obtain a more efficient test.
