The class of plateaued functions (or r-plateaued functions) are Boolean functions with many cryptographically desirable properties, and this class of plateaued functions include bent functions. In fact, bent functions are exactly 0-plateaued functions. There are some results on the nonexistence of homogeneous 0-plateaued functions in n variables by Xia et al., Meng et al., and by the authors. In this paper we present a result on the nonexistence of r-plateaued functions in n variables (0<r<n): for a given n≥N and r, we prove the nonexistence of r-plateaued functions with certain degrees, where N is some integer depending on r.
