Hello Experts,

In one of my application I need to implement GALOIS FIELD arithmetic (used in Reed Solomon algorithm) for division and multiplication.
As referenced to the link "". In GFilog and GFLog table GFilog(FF) and GFLog(00) values are not defined.
How can we get the values of GFiLog(FF) and GFLog(00)?

    They don't have values. They are undefined (similar to 1/0). You just handle these cases separately however works best for your application.
