Permutational behavior of reversed Dickson polynomials over finite fields

School of Mathematics and information, China west normal University, Nanchong 637009, P.R. China

In this paper, we develop the method presented previouslyby Hong, Qin and Zhao to obtain several results on the permutationalbehavior of the reversed Dickson polynomial $D_{n,k}(1,x)$of the $(k+1)$-th kind over the finite field ${\mathbb F}_{q}$.Particularly, we present the explicit evaluation of thefirst moment $\sum_{a\in {\mathbb F}_{q}}D_{n,k}(1,a)$.Our results extend the results of Hong, Qin and Zhaoto the general $k\ge 0$ case.
