Section 2.,1st para says:

   Throughout this memo, let p > 3 be a prime and GF(p) a finite field
|  (sometimes also referred to as Galois Field or GF(p)) with p
   elements.  [...]

It should say:

   Throughout this memo, let p > 3 be a prime and GF(p) a finite field
|  (sometimes also referred to as Galois Field or F_p) with p elements.
   [...]

or perhaps more precisely:

   Throughout this memo, let p > 3 be a prime and GF(p) a finite field
|  (Galois Field) with p elements (sometimes also referred to as F_p). 
   [...]


Notes:

Rationale:
... GF(p) ... sometimes also referred to as ... GF(p) ...
does no make sense.
The original version from the draft did make sense -- mentioning
_another_ common notion, "F_p".
