Not sure if I might be in the wrong section, but I am looking for guidance on how to plot an elliptic curve over a finite field in Maple. I have tried looking it up but only getting good results for Matlab (which I do not have access to).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ What kind of plot do you want to see? The rational points of an elliptic curve over a finite field is a finite set, so what kind of visualization are you looking for? $\endgroup$ – Brandon Carter Mar 16 '16 at 22:18
  • $\begingroup$ Do you have access to sage? You can plot elliptic curves on sage as well. $\endgroup$ – Learner Mar 17 '16 at 3:42
  • $\begingroup$ What does it mean to "plot" something over a finite field? You can plot the real-number analog of the curve. Is that what you mean? $\endgroup$ – Carl Love Mar 18 '16 at 17:59
  • $\begingroup$ I'm trying to create a plot that looks like a scatter graph. I have tried unsuccessfully to use Sage. $\endgroup$ – Alice Mar 23 '16 at 12:06
