On Algorithms for Computing Order of Elliptic Curves over Finite Fields

Publication Date
  • Computer Science


This paper surveys recent advances of algorithms for computing order or elliptic curves over finite fields. Let p be the characteristic of the base field of a given elliptic curve. Following a usual convention, we denote a primo different from p by l. Then, for fields of large characteristic, l-adic method known as the SEA algorithm is efficient. Whereas, p-adic method runs much faster for fields of small characteristic.
