Elliptic Curves in Sage

Date

October 19, 2010

Speaker

William Stein

Overview

Sage (http://sagemath.org) is the most feature rich general purpose free open source software for computing with elliptic curves. In this talk, I’ll describe what Sage can compute about elliptic curves and how it does some of these computation, then discuss what Sage currently can’t compute but should be able to (e.g., because Magma can).
