Abstract: For $ m \in {\mathbb{N}}$, let $ S_m$ be the Suzuki curve defined over $ \mathbb{F}_{2^{2m+1}}$. It is well-known that $ S_m$ is supersingular, but the $ p$-torsion group scheme of its Jacobian is not known. The $ a$-number is an invariant of the isomorphism class of the $ p$-torsion group scheme. In this paper, we compute a closed formula for the $ a$-number of $ S_m$ using the action of the Cartier operator on $ H^0(S_m,\Omega ^1)$.
