Arithmetic
This is a list of the arithmetic operations available on numbers in Maple. The `.` (dot) operator is used for non-commutative multiplication, for example for matrix multiplication. The operations iquo, irem, isqrt, igcd, and ilcm are integer operations only. Note that there is further help available for each operation.

See also the mod, modp, and mods commands. The mod operator evaluates the expression e over the integers modulo m. It incorporates facilities for doing finite field arithmetic and polynomial and matrix arithmetic over finite fields, including factorization.
