I want to play with a bunch of multivariate polynomials whose coefficients are 0,1 -- i.e., elements of GF(2).

I want to expand, factor, etc., but I want Maxima to realize that "-" is the same as "+", that coefficients that have factors of 2 are all zeros, etc.

I did "modulus:2", but this didn't have the intended effect.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
