In this work we fill in the knowledge gap concerning testing polynomials over finite fields. As previous works show, when the cardinality of the field, q, is sufficiently larger than the degree bound, d, then the number of queries sufficient for testing is polynomial or even linear in d. On the other hand, when q = 2 then the number of queries, both sufficient and necessary, grows exponentially with d. Here we study the intermediate case where 2 < q /spl les/ O(d) and show a smooth transition… CONTINUE READING
