Sziklai’s conjecture on the number of points of a plane curve over a finite field. III. (English) Zbl 1196.14030
Summary: We manage an upper bound for the number of rational points of a Frobenius nonclassical plane curve over a finite field. Together with previous results, the modified Sziklai conjecture is settled affirmatively.
For part II, cf. [Contemp. Math. 518, 225–234 (2010; Zbl 1211.14037)].
