Preface
PrefaceFinite fields are used in different types of computers and digital communication systems. Two well-known examples are error-correction codes and cryptography. The traditional way of implementing the corresponding algorithms is software, running on general-purpose processors or on digital-signal processors. Nevertheless, in some cases the time constraints cannot be met with instruction-set processors, and specific hardware must be considered, that is, circuits specifically designed for executing those complex algorithms: they implement the particular computation primitives of the algorithms and profit from their inherent parallelism.Apart from the application-specific integra…
