# Revision history [back]

We can start with a default version of $F=\Bbb F_q$, $q=p^{12}$, construct $w$ inside it, ask for the minimal polynomial $P$ of $w$, and work further with $F$. Or construct $K\cong F$ by using $K=\Bbb F_p[X]/(P)$. Let us construct $w$ in the "default" world.

F = GF(0x1a0111ea397fe69a4b1ba7b6434bacd764774b84f38512bf6730d2a0f6b0f6241eabfffeb153ffffb9feffffffffaaab)
p = F.characteristic()
F12.<G> = GF(p^12)    # G is the generator, we will not need it below

u = sqrt(F12(-1))
R12.<Y> = PolynomialRing(F12)

v = (Y^3 - (u+1)).roots(multiplicities=False)[0]
w = sqrt(v)

P = w.minpoly()


As expected, we get a polynomial P of degree $12$, and now we may want to switch to

K.<W> = GF(p^12, modulus=P)
