Programming AES Encryption - Mix Columns Part

I'm not understanding at all how I can program this... I'm quite confused at the moment..

I'm hoping someone here can break it down into layman's terms for me...

best way probably for me to understand is maybe by picking a couple numbers and showing me in a psuedo code type of way, how I could come up with the correct answer

at the moment i have:

d4  e0  48  28
bf  b4  41  27
5d  52  11  98
30  ae  f1  e5

I guess i'm supposed to break it down into binary and multiply it by

2  3  1  1
1  2  3  1
1  1  2  3
3  1  1  2

end result after mix columns:
04  e0  48  28
66  cb  f8  06
81  19  d3  26
e5  9a  7a  4c

I guess, here is the description:

One of the ways is to read the fisrt matrix as strings and then tokenize
into individual numbers use this method Integer.parseInt(String, 16)
and get [4][4] array of integers

Then you read matrix of decimal  integers.

Then you multiply matrices and
transform each one with Integer.toHexString
and you should get another matrix.

I don't understand, though, it should be not just simple multipilication
as all numbers should be no bigger than ff after multiplication -and I'm not
sure I understood from the above metntioned text

Yes these multiplications and additions are not multiplications and additions, they are fairly  fairly complex - see here:

this walks you through the maths required
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4964515/aes-limitations-and-mixcolumns
should be straight forward to implement it based on that
we are not permitted to code it for you but if you have any problems let me know and I'll help you through it

also a java implementation here that you can probably extract from to meet your needs
