Abstract: All of the primitive trinomials over $ GF(2)$ with degree p given by one of the Mersenne exponents 19937, 21701, 23209, and 44497 are presented. Also, one example of a primitive pentanomial over $ GF(2)$ is presented for each degree up to 44497 that is a Mersenne exponent. The sieve used is briefly described. A problem is posed which conjectures the number of primitive pentanomials of degree p.
