    Characteristic polynomial

    Hey guys,

    I really need some help please!
    I would really appreciate it if anyone can help out,

    if we have F16 = F2/(x^4+x+1). can any one explain to me how can I compute the minimal polynomials and the characteristic polynomils over F2 of elements of F16 and to point out the primitive ones . I have difficulty to understand this question.
    Thanks
