In the the answer of the question "How to find roót of polynomial in finite field and extension finite field (at URL: http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/203977-How-To-Find-Roots-Of-Polynomial-In-Finite#answer215097). Carl Love helped compute eigenvalues (x1,x2,...,xn)and eigenvectors of the given matrix M over GF(28)/(y^8+y^4+y^3+y+1).
I need to do:
1. Get matrix D from these eigenvalues (x1,x2,...,xn), with D[i,i] = xi and D[i,j≠i] = 0 (D will be diagonalizable matrix. Some xi may be in extension finite field GF((28)2))
2. Get matrix P from eigenvectors corresponding to the above eigenvalues, compute P-1
3. Compute matrix B = P x D1/4 x P-1 in extension finite field GF((28)2).
Please help me!!!
