Özet

Let F-q be a finite field containing F-4. Let k >= 2 be an integer. We give a full classification of quadratic forms over F-q(k) of codimension 2 provided that certain three coefficients are from F-4. As an application of this we obtain new results on the classification of maximal and minimal curves over F-q(k) . We also give some nonexistence results on certain systems of equations over F-q(k).
