Hello curves fans,

another article in my introductory series about elliptic curves used in

cryptography is out[1]. This time it is about point addition on elliptic

curve in simple Weierstrass form over R and GF(p). For those following

my discussion with Brad earlier, you can see the graphical

representation of infinite straight line over GF(p) torus in the

video[2] - around 0:45 it becomes closed. I would appreciate any

feedback regarding the article format, visualizations or anything else -

just, please, bear in mind that the intended audience are real beginners

and therefore I have omitted some things and want to explain them in the

future separately.

Cheers,

Dominik
