Let chi be a smooth, geometrically irreducible and projective curve over a finite field F-q of odd characteristic. The L-polynomial L-chi(t) of chi determines the number of rational points of chi not only over F-q but also over F-qs for any integer s >= 1. In this paper we determine L-polynomials of a class of such curves over F-q.
