Let $p$ be a prime number and, for $t>1$, consider $\mathcal{X}$ the nonsingular model of $$Y^{q}-Y= X^{q_0}(X^{q}- X),$$ where $q_{0}= p^{t}$ and $q=p^{2t-1}$.

For $p$ even, $\mathcal{X}$ is the so-called Deligne--Lusztig curve associated with the Suzuki group, which has remarkable properties, for instance its large automorphism group with respect to the genus.

In the present work, we address the study of $\mathcal{X}$ for $p$ an odd prime number.

Joint work with Herivelto Borges (Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil).
