The SwB Store is divided into a number of ministores, each listing different products such as for Books, eBooks, Audiobooks, Music CDs, Documentaries, Journal Subscriptions, Educational Material Maps and so on. The Books Ministore is what we have started with, and from time to time we will add more.


Elliptic Curves

A Computational Approach


The basics of the theory of elliptic curves should be known to a large audience of mathematicians and computer scientists. In particular, everyone concerned with cryptography should know at least the fundamental aspects of this important topic.

The purpose of the present textbook is to give an elementary introduction to elliptic curves. This branch of number theory is particularly accessible to computer-assisted calculations, and the authors make use of this feature by approaching the theory under a computational point of view. Specifically, the computer-algebra package SIMATH is applied on several occasions. However, the book can also be read by those not interested in the computational aspects. Of course, the theory of elliptic curves is very comprehensive and becomes correspondingly sophisticated in its application. Hence, the authors made a careful selection of the topics treated. These topics include the determination of torsion groups, computations regarding the Mordell-Weil group, height calculations, S-integral points.

The content is kept as elementary as possible, and therefore the book differs significantly from the numerous textbooks on elliptic curves nowadays available. The book is addressed to graduate students and researches in both mathematics and computer science.
