We derive explicit equations for the maximal function fields F over F-q(2n) given by F = F-q(2n) (X, Y) with the relation A(Y) = f(X), where A(Y) and f(X) are polynomials with coefficients in the finite field F-q(2n), and where A(Y) is q- additive and deg(f) = q(n) + 1. We prove in particular that such maximal function fields F are Galois subfields of the Hermitian function field H over F-q(2n) (i.e., the extension H/F is Galois).
