EllipticCurves :: ellCurve(Thing,Thing,Thing)

ellCurve(Thing,Thing,Thing) -- A method for creating elliptic curves in short Weierstrass form.

Synopsis

Description

Returns an elliptic curve in short Weierstrass form given by the equation: y^2=x^3+Ax+B

i1 : ellCurve(3,8,GF(13))

o1 = Elliptic Curve defined by Y^2 = X^3 + 3 X + (-5)( over(GF 13 .))
