Abstract: In this note we extend the range of previously published tables of primitive polynomials over finite fields. For each $ {p^n} < {10^{50}}$ with $ p \leq 97$ we provide a primitive polynomial of degree n over $ {F_p}$. Moreover, each polynomial has the minimal number of nonzero coefficients among all primitives of degree n over $ {F_p}$.
