### Abstract

Zhou ([20]) introduced modified planar functions in order to describe (2

^{n}; 2^{n}; 2^{n}; 1) relative difference sets R as a graph of a function on the finite field F_{2n}, and pointed out that projections of R are difference sets that can be described by negabent or bent_{4}functions, which are Boolean functions given in multivariate form. One of the objectives of this paper is to contribute to the understanding of these component functions of modified planar functions. Moreover, we obtain a description of modified planar functions by their components which is similar to that of the classical planar functions in odd characteristic as a vectorial bent function. We finally point out that though these components behave somewhat different than the multivariate bent4 functions, they are bent or semibent functions shifted by a certain quadratic term, a property which they share with their multivariate counterpart.Original language | English |
