Abstract : It has been illustrated how the use of the theory of finite fields enables one to express any polynomial as an integral power of a given polynomial in some polynomial field. When the polynomials to be stored have many variables (as in the case with usual discriminant polynomials in pattern recognition) this necessitates the storage of certain auxilliary polynomials -- one for each variable involved and of a degree one more than the largest power to which the variable is raised. A rough estimate is given of the memory saved and the computation involved. (Author)
