Finite Elliptic Curve Group, Eq(a,b), q = p^n

This section describes finite elliptic curve groups constructed with modular arithmetic reduction of prime power numbers, p^n.

Finite elliptic curve groups can also be constructed using modular arithmetic reduction of prime power numbers.

Let's assume we have an elliptic curve, E(a,b):

y^{2}= x^{3}+ ax + b where: a and b are integers 4a^{3}+ 27b^{2}!= 0

Let's assume we have a prime number p,
and a prime power number, q = p^{k}.
An Abelian group can be defined as:

1. Group Element Set -

All P = (x,y), such that: y^{2}= x^{3}+ ax + b (mod q) where: q = p^{k}k is positive integer p is a prime number a and b are integers 4a^{3}+ 27b^{2}!= 0 x and y are integers in {0, 1, 2, ..., q-1}

2. Group Operation -

For any two given points on the curve: P = (x_{P}, y_{P}) Q = (x_{Q}, y_{Q}) R = P + Q is a third point on the curve: R = (x_{R}, y_{R}) Where: x_{R}= m^{2}- x_{P}- x_{Q}(mod q) (20) y_{R}= m(x_{P}- x_{R}) - y_{P}(mod q) (21) If P != Q, m is determined by: m(x_{P}- x_{Q}) = y_{P}- y_{Q}(mod q) (22) If P = Q, m is determined by: 2m(y_{P}) = 3(x_{P})^{2}+ a (mod q) (23)

3. Identity Element - The infinite point of 0 = (∞, ∞).

Examples of finite elliptic curve groups using prime power numbers will be provided later.
