In 1974, J. Thas constructed a new class of maximal arcs for the Desarguesian plane of order q 2. The construction relied upon the existence of a regular spread of tangent lines to an ovoid in PG(3, q) and, in particular, it does apply to the Suzuki–Tits ovoid. In this paper, we describe an algorithm for obtaining a possible representation of such arcs in PG(2, q 2).
