Quantum systems with variables in the finite ring Z(d) will be studied. The phase space in this case is a finite geometry. The properties of this geometry will be studied in detail. The results will be used in the context of phase space methods for these systems and also for mutually unbiased bases which have applications in quantum cryptography. Applications of these formalisms into quantum computation with finite quantum systems, will also be studied.
