Abstract: We present an r-th root extraction algorithm over a finite field F_q. Our algorithm precomputes a primitive r^s-th root of unity where s is the largest positive integer satisfying r^s| q-1, and is applicable for the cases when s is small. The proposed algorithm requires one exponentiation for the r-th root computation and is favorably compared to the existing algorithms.
