GF(p)

Note: parentTerm.TermNote

Definition(s):

  The finite field with p elements, where p is an (odd) prime number. The elements of GF(p) can be represented by the set of integers {0, 1, …, p-1}. The addition and multiplication operations for GF(p) can be realized by performing the corresponding integer operations and reducing the results modulo p.
