Primitive free cubics with specified norm and trace

By S. Huczynska and S.D. Cohen


The existence of a primitive free (normal) cubic x<sup>3</sup> - ax<sup>2</sup> + cx - b over a finite field F with arbitrary specified values of a (&#8800;0) and b (primitive) is guaranteed. This is the most delicate case of a general existence theorem whose proof is thereby completed
