From ApCoCoAWiki

## NCo.SetFp

Set coefficient field to a finite field.

### Syntax

NCo.SetFp([P:INT])

### Description

Note that the default coefficient field is the field of rational numbers, i.e. RAT in CoCoAL. This function has 0 or 1 parameter. The coefficient field is set to the binary field {0,1} if no parameter is given, i.e. via the first function NC.SetFp(), and is set to the finite field {0,1,...,P-1}. The coefficient field can be set to the field of rational numbers via the function NC.UnSetFp.

@param

*P*: a prime.

#### Example

NCo.RingEnv(); Coefficient ring : Q ------------------------------- NCo.SetFp(); NCo.RingEnv(); Coefficient ring : Fp = Z/(2) ------------------------------- NCo.SetFp(3); NCo.RingEnv(); Coefficient ring : Fp = Z/(3) -------------------------------
