number or polynomial

Converts numbers or coefficients of polynomials into elements in finite
fields.

It is used to convert integers or intrgral polynomials int
elements of finite fields or polynomials over finite fields.

An element of a finite field may not have the reduced representation.
In such case an application of
simp_ff
assures the output has
the reduced representation.
