Algebraic Solution for Symmetrical Points

This section provides an algebraic solution for calculating the addition operation of two symmetrical points on an elliptic curve.

Case 1: P and Q are symmetrical points - This case is very easy.

If P and Q are symmetrical points, we know that: y_{Q}= - y_{P}P + Q = P + (-P) = O (the infinity point or identity element) So: R = O = (∞, ∞) x_{R}= ∞ y_{R}= ∞
