17. Introducing An Analysis in Finite Fields

Looking forward to introducing an analysis in Galois Fields, discrete functions are considered (such as transcendental ones) and
MacLaurin series are derived by Lagrange's Interpolation. A new derivative over finite fields is defined which is based on the
Hasse Derivative and is referred to as negacyclic Hasse derivative. Finite field Taylor series and a-adic expansions over GF(p),
p prime, are then considered. Applications to exponential and trigonometric functions are presented.
Theses tools can be useful in areas such as coding theory and digital signal processing.
