# Finite field calculator

This tool allows you to carry out algebraic operations on elements of a finite field.

A finite field is a field with q = pn elements, where p is a prime number.

For the case where n = 1, you can also use Numerical calculator.
First give the number of elements:
q =
If q is not prime (i.e., n > 1), the elements of must be described by a generator x whose minimal polynomial x over is irreducible of degree n. In this case, you should define:
P(x) =
