We study the finite subgroups of $\operatorname{PGL}(2,K)$ when $K$ is an algebraically closed field of positive characteristic. For this, we use the theory of Algebraic Function Fields in one variable. We show how this result can be applied to find the automorphism group of Artin-Schreier curves.\\
