For every prime p, there are AT2-optimal VLSI multipliers for Galois fields GF(pn) in standard notation. In fact, the lower bound AT2 = Ω(n2) is matched for every computation time T in the range [Ω(log n), 0(√n)]. Similar results hold for variable primes p too. The designs are based on the DFT on a structure similar to Fermat rings. For p=2 the DFT uses 3-th instead of 2-th rotts of unity.
