Bent and plateaued functions play a significant role in cryptography since they can have various desirable cryptographic properties. In this work, we first provide the characterizations of plateaued functions in terms of the moments of their Walsh transforms. Next, we generalize the characterizations of Boolean bent and plateaued functions in terms of their second-order derivatives to arbitrary characteristic. Moreover, we present a new characterization of plateaued functions in terms of fourth power moments of their Walsh transforms. Furthermore, we give a new proof of the characterization of vectorial bent functions. Finally, we present the characterizations of vectorial s-plateaued functions in terms of moments of their Walsh transforms and the zeros of their second-order derivatives.


Some characterizations of generalized s-plateaued functions
Çelik, Emircan; Özbudak, Ferruh; Department of Cryptography (2017)
Plateaued functions play important role in cryptography because of their various desirable cryptographic features. Due to this characteristics they have been widely studied in the literature. This studies include p-ary functions and some generalizations of the boolean functions. In this thesis, we present some of this important work and show that plateaued functions can be generalized much more general framework naturally. Characterizations of generalized plateaued functions using Walsh power moments are al...
An approach for decentralized process modeling
Turetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur (2007-05-20)
This paper describes a method for organizations to perform process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The approach is based on the idea that modeling organizations' processes can be performed by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to analyze, understand, model and improve processes, real performers are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. The paper also summarizes the lessons learned by appl...
Some Studies on CCZ-Equivalence of the Inverse Function
Fidan, Mehtap; ÖZBUDAK, Ferruh; Department of Cryptography (2021-9-28)
Most cryptographic systems, like block ciphers, depend heavily on vectorial Boolean functions. A function with good cryptological properties should have low differential uniformity which is invariant under some equivalence classes. The more general one of these is CCZ-equivalence which is introduced by Carlet, Charpin and Zinoviev in 1998. In cryptography, CCZ-equivalence gained an interest since it preserves many significant properties like differential uniformity. Looking for permutations within the CCZ-c...
Characterisation and enumeration of a class of semi bent quadratic Boolean functions
KOÇAK, Neşe; Koçak, Onur Ozan; Özbudak, Ferruh; SAYGI, ZÜLFÜKAR (2015-01-01)
In this paper, we consider semi-bentness of quadratic Boolean functions defined for even n and give the characterisation of these functions. Up to our knowledge, semi-bentness of this class has not been investigated before and we proved that semi-bent functions of this form exist only for 6|n. Furthermore, we present a method for enumeration of semi-bent and bent functions in certain classes. Using this method we find the exact number of semi-bent functions of this form. Moreover, we complete some previous ...
A new approach to mathematical water quality modeling in reservoirs: Neural networks
Karul, C; Soyupak, S; Germen, E (1998-01-01)
Neural Networks are becoming more and more valuable tools for system modeling and function approximation as computing power of microcomputers increase. Modeling of complex ecological systems such as reservoir limnology is very difficult since the ecological interactions within a reservoir are difficult to define mathematically and are usually system specific. To illustrate the potential use of Neural Networks in ecological modeling, a software was developed to train the data from Keban Dam Reservoir by back...
