# gfmul

Multiply elements of Galois field

## Description

returns the Galois field resulting from element-by-element multiplication of input Galois
fields `c`

= gfmul(`a`

,`b`

)`a`

and `b`

. Each entry of
`a`

and `b`

is an element in GF(2). For more
information, see Galois Field Entries.

returns the Galois field resulting from element-by-element multiplication of input Galois
fields `c`

= gfmul(`a`

,`b`

,`p`

)`a`

and `b`

in GF(`p`

),
where `p`

is a prime number. For more information, see Galois Field Entries.

## Tips

This function multiplies elements of a Galois field.

To multiply polynomials over a Galois field, use

`gfconv`

instead.This function performs computations in GF(

`p`

^{m}), where`p`

is prime.To work in GF(2

^{m}), you can also apply the`.*`

operator to Galois arrays. For more information, see Example: Multiplication.
