Polynomials and Finite Fields
In section 7.1 a field was defined and examples were mentioned which included the finite field Zp obtained by forming the residue classes for a prime modulus p. In this chapter we shall consider other finite fields obtained by combining Zp with powers of x to form polynomial expressions in x: but first it is advisable to extend the ideas on congruency and on the solution of congruencies which were introduced in Chapter 1. Section 1.10 is particularly relevant.
