We study quadratic functions given in trace form Q( x) = Tr-n(Sigma(k)(i=0) a(i)x(pi+1)) with the restriction that a(i) is an element of F-p, 0 <= i <= k. We determine the expected value for the parameter s for such quadratic functions from F-p(n) to F-p, for many classes of integers n. Our exact formulas confirm that on average the value of s is small, and hence the average nonlinearity of this class of quadratic functions is high when p = 2. We heavily use methods, recently developed by Meidl, Topuzo. glu and Meidl, Roy, Topuzo. glu in order to construct/enumerate such functions with prescribed s. In the first part of this paper we describe these methods in detail and summarize the counting results.
