Algebraic geometry in finite fieldsAlgebraic geometry can be summed up (and perhaps wrongly) as the study of polynomials over a field with n variables. We denote Along those lines, I found this rather fun statement: Anyone want to attempt a proof? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
