A new proof to complexity of dual basis of a type I optimal normal basis

Baofeng Wu, Kai Zhou, Zhuojun Liu

The complexity of dual basis of a type I optimal normal basis of $\mathbb{F}_{q^n}$ over $\mathbb{F}_{q}$ was determined to be $3n-3$ or $3n-2$ according as $q$ is even or odd, respectively, by Z.-X. Wan and K. Zhou in 2007. We give a new proof to this result by clearly deriving the dual of a type I optimal normal basis with the aid of a lemma on the dual of a polynomial basis.
