### Paper: A note on efficient computation of cube roots in characteristic 3

Authors: Paulo S. L. M. Barreto URL: http://eprint.iacr.org/2004/305 Search ePrint Search Google The cost of the folklore algorithm for computing cube roots in $\F_{3^m}$ in standard polynomial basis is less that one multiplication, but still $O(m^2)$. Here we show that, if $\F_{3^m}$ is represented in trinomial basis as $\F_3[x]/(x^m + ax^k + b)$ with $a, b = \pm 1$, the actual cost of computing cube roots in $\F_{3^m}$ is only $O(m)$.
