## A toolbox for simple finite field operation

version 1.3.0.0 (10.9 KB) by
This is a toolbox providing simple operations (+,-,*,/,.*,./,inv) for finite field.

Updated 04 Sep 2012

This toolbox can handle simple operations (+,-,*,/,.*,./,inv) of GF(p^n) for any p and n. Examples are given below (also documented in gf_test.m).

% setup path
java_path_setup;
% create gf class of 3^2
gf9=gf(3,2);

%%%%
% Eg. 1
a=[2 1;1 0]

% compute rank
gf9.rank(a)

% compute inverse
inva = gf9.inv(a)

% Check inverse
a_times_ainva=gf9.mult(a,inva)

% matrix divide
gf9.div(a,a)

%%%%%
% Eg. 2
b=[1 2 1;1 0 1];
c=[1 1 0;2 1 1];

% compute summation

% compute subtraction
gf9.sub(b,c)

% compute dot multiplication
gf9.dmult(b,c)

% compute dot division
gf9.ddiv(b,c)

% output the primitive polynomial
gf9.return_primitive_polynomial % x^2 + 1

% show polynomial representation
gf9.return_poly_representation(5) % x + 2

%%%%
% Eg. 3

% manipulating polynomials.

a=[1 2 1 1];
b=[1 3 1];

gf9.conv(a,b)

[q,rem]=gf9.deconv(a,b)
