If R is a ring equipped with an endomorphism sigma, the ring of skew polynomials over (R,sigma) is the ring of usual polynomials over R with the modified multiplication given by the rule X*a = sigma(a)*X.

Skew polynomials play an important role in several domains like coding theory or Galois representations theory in positive characteristic.

The attached patch provides:

  1. a basic implementation of skew polynomials over any commutative ring (including addition, multiplication, euclidean division, gcd...)
  2. a more complete implementation of skew polynomials over finite fields (including factoring)
