The purpose of this project is to study the problem of estimating the number of rational points on algebraic curves defined over finite fields. Consider a projective, irreducible, non-singular, algebraic curve defined over a finite field Fq. Upper bounds for the number of Fq-rational points of the curve are obtained via the Stohr-Voloch theory applied to some non-complete linear series. For a plane curve with a peculiar property, the bounds obtained in such way improve some other known bounds of literature.The main goals here are the following:-Characterize the equation of the plane curves having such aforementioned property.-Develop methods to obtain a plane model with such property from a given curve.- Present examples and applications.
