Efficient multiplication in double-struck F sign3ℓm, m ≥ 1 and 5 ≤ ℓ ≤ 18

Using a method based on Chinese Remainder Theorem for polynomial multiplication and suitable reductions, we obtain an efficient multiplication method for finite fields of characteristic 3. Large finite fields of characteristic 3 are important for pairing based cryptography [3]. For 5 <= l <= 18, we show that our method gives canonical multiplication formulae over F-3lm for any m >= 1 with the best multiplicative complexity improving the bounds in [6]. We give explicit formula in the case F-36.97.
