See addition and multiplication tables.

Binary values expressed as polynomials in GF(2^{m}) can readily be manipulated using the definition of
this finite field. Addition operations take place as bitwise XOR on m-bit coefficients. Multiplication is defined modulo P(x), where P(x) is a primitive polynomial of degree m.
This online tool serves as a polynomial calculator in GF(2^{m}).

Select input polynomials as decimal coefficients separated by
spaces and a P(x) defining GF(2^{m}).

Multiplication in GF(8), based on P(x) = x^{3} + x + 1
