The Elliptic Curve Plotter is a graphical application that illustrates elliptic curves. Elliptic curves are a mathematical concept that is especially important in number theory and constitutes a major area of current research. Elliptic curves find applications in elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) and integer factorization.
Users can sketch elliptic curves and experiment with their group law, and save images in PNG or SVG format for later use.
