FieldExp

FieldExp[f, n]
gives the value of the discrete exponential of n associated with the field f.
  • With p a primitive element of the field f, the value of the discrete exponential function of n is pn. In particular, FieldExp[f, 1] gives the primitive element used.
  • FieldExp is defined only if PowerListQ has been set True for the field.
  • FieldExp[f, -Infinity] gives 0.
