In 2008, Kedlaya and Umans designed the first multivariate multi-point evaluation algorithm over finite fields with an asymptotic complexity that can be made arbitrarily close to linear. However, it remains a major challenge to make their algorithm efficient for practical input sizes. In this paper, we revisit and improve their algorithm, while keeping this ultimate goal in mind. In addition we sharpen the known complexity bounds for modular composition of univariate polynomials over finite fields.
