However, factorization of an important class, namely, of permutation polynomials was not studied previously. In this thesis we present results on factorization of permutation polynomials of Fq,q 2: In order to tackle this problem, we consider permutation polynomials Fn(x)2 Fq[x], n 0; which are defined recursively as compositions of monomials of degree d with gcd(d;q {u100000} 1) = 1, and linear polynomials. Extensions of Fq defined by using the recursive structure of Fn(x) satisfy particular properties that enable us to employ techniques from Galois theory. In consequence, we obtain a variety of results on degrees and number of irreducible factors of the polynomials Fn(x).
