# Finite Fields

Learn about finite fields and their properties, prime fields, and primitive roots in this lesson.

## Introduction

**Finite fields** or **Galois fields**, denoted by $\mathbb{F}$ or $G F$, are fields that only contain a finite number of elements. Any finite field $\mathbb{F}$ is equipped with two operations, namely addition and multiplication, which satisfy the properties of the definition
**order of** $\mathbb{F}$.
