About one algorithm of calculation of inverses in finite fields



In work are two algorithms of calculation of inverses in a finite field qn F developed, where q is power of the prime number. They are received by generalisation of algorithm of Wong for a field F2n with use of the main idea for fast algorithm of calculation of inverses in the field 2 F n .
