Elliptic curves. Number theory and cryptography. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1200.11043

Boca Raton, FL: Chapman and Hall/CRC (ISBN 978-1-4200-7146-7/hbk). xviii, 513 p. (2008).
See the review of the first edition in Zbl 1034.11037.
With additional exercises, this edition offers more comprehensive coverage of the fundamental theory, techniques, and applications of elliptic curves. New to the Second Edition are chapters on
– isogenies and hyperelliptic curves,
– a discussion of alternative coordinate systems, such as projective, Jacobian, and Edwards coordinates, along with related computational issues,
– a more complete treatment of the Weil and Tate–Lichtenbaum pairings,
– Doud’s analytic method for computing torsion on elliptic curves over \(\mathbb Q\),
– an explanation of how to perform calculations with elliptic curves in several popular computer algebra systems.
