Question: How to find k-th root of the given matrix over finite field

Hi EveryOne!

In the the answer of the question "How to find roót of polynomial in finite field and extension finite field (at URL: 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!!!
