Let GF(q) be a finite field over GF(p), p prime. I want to find a primitive element gamma of G(q) and then find the minimal polynomial of gamma^j over GF(p), j an integer.

Is there a default way to do this?

Like this?

F = GF(5^7)
gamma = F.multiplicative_generator()
for j in (1..10):
    print(j, (gamma^j).minpoly())
