GF


gives the Galois field that is a degree d extension of the prime field of p elements.
GF[q]
gives the Galois field with q elements, for q a prime power.

represents the Galois field with prime characteristic p and an irreducible polynomial whose coefficient list is given by ilist.

represents an element of the Galois field whose polynomial representation has coefficient list elist.
