Python Program for Reduced Elliptic Curves

This section provides a Python program that finds all points on a reduced elliptic curve group, Ep(a,b).

I implemented the algorithm presented in the previous tutorial in a Python program:

# ReducedEllipticCurve.py # Copyright (c) 2018, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved. # import sys if (len(sys.argv) < 4): print("Usage: python ReducedEllipticCurve.py a b p") exit() aa = sys.argv[1] bb = sys.argv[2] pp = sys.argv[3] a = int(aa) b = int(bb) p = int(pp) r = 4*a**3 + 27*b**2 if (r == 0): print("Error: (a, b) = ("+aa+", "+bb+") and 4a^3 + 27b^2 == 0") exit() if (p < 3): print("Error: p = "+pp+" is too small") exit() print("Elliptic equation: y^2 = x^3 + ax + b with (a, b) = (" +aa+", "+bb+")") print("Modular arithmetic: p = "+pp) # Possible left hand side values left = [] lMap = {} for i in range(0,int((p+1)/2)): l = (i*i) % p left.append(l) if (l in lMap): lMap[l].append(i) else: lMap[l] = [i] print("Left hand side: "+str(lMap)) # Possible right hand side values right = [] rMap = {} for i in range(0,p): r = (i*i*i+a*i+b) % p right.append(r) if (r in rMap): rMap[r].append(i) else: rMap[r] = [i] print("Right hand side: "+str(rMap)) # Common values left = list(set(left)) right = list(set(right)) left.sort() right.sort() common = [] j = 0 for i in range(0,len(left)): while (j<len(right) and left[i]>right[j] ): j = j+1 if (j<len(right) and left[i]==right[j]): common.append(left[i]) print("Common values: "+str(common)) print("Elliptic curve group points:") width = str(len(str(p))) word = "({:"+width+"d},{:"+width+"d})" blank = "("+("-"*len(str(p)))+","+("-"*len(str(p)))+")" count = 0 k = 0 line = "" while (k<len(common)): c = common[k] for i in range(0,len(rMap[c])): x = rMap[c][i] for j in range(0,len(lMap[c])): y = lMap[c][j] line = line+" "+word.format(x,y) if (y>0): line = line+" "+word.format(x,p-y) if (y==0): word.format(x,y) line = line+" "+blank count = count+2 if (count%6 == 0): print(line) line = "" k = k+1 print(line)

Let's verify this program with E_{23}(1,4):

C:\herong> python ReducedEllipticCurve.py 1 4 23 Elliptic equation: y^2 = x^3 + ax + b with (a, b) = (1, 4) Modular arithmetic: p = 23 Left hand side: {0: [0], 1: [1], 4: [2], 9: [3], 16: [4], 2: [5], 13: [6], 3: [7], 18: [8], 12: [9], 8: [10], 6: [11]} Right hand side: {4: [0], 6: [1, 9, 13], 14: [2], 11: [3], 3: [4], 19: [5, 6, 12], 9: [7], 18: [8], 2: [10, 14, 22], 12: [11, 17, 18], 13: [15], 22: [16], 5: [19], 20: [20], 17: [21]} Common values: [2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 13, 18] Elliptic curve group points: (10, 5) (10,18) (14, 5) (14,18) (22, 5) (22,18) ( 4, 7) ( 4,16) ( 0, 2) ( 0,21) ( 1,11) ( 1,12) ( 9,11) ( 9,12) (13,11) (13,12) ( 7, 3) ( 7,20) (11, 9) (11,14) (17, 9) (17,14) (18, 9) (18,14) (15, 6) (15,17) ( 8, 8) ( 8,15)

The output matches well with my manual calculation! So I assume the program works.
