article description
Elliptic curves have found widespread use in number theory and applications thereof, such as cryptography. In this paper we will first examine the basic theory of elliptic curves and then look specifically at how they can be used to construct cryptographic systems more efficient than their counterparts, and how they can be used to generate proofs for or against primality.
