Abstract: In this paper, we give a bound for the number of rational points of a complete, geometrically irreducible, algebraic curve defined over a finite field. We compare it with other known bounds and discuss its sharpness. We also show that the asymptotic Drinfeld-Vladut bound can be generalized to the case of singular curves.
