Number - Field


A field is a collection of “numbers” with the operator: +, -, *, /

Different fields are like different classes obeying to the same interface.

Same as Number - (Numeral system|System of numeration|Representation of number) ??

A field is also known as abody:

  • corps in French
  • Körper in German

A field with a finite number of members is known as a finite field or Galois field (two elements).
