Editorial Reviews

Review

… the book is well structured and does not waste the reader’s time in dividing cryptography from number theory-only information. This enables the reader just to pick the desired information. … a very comprehensive guide on the theory of elliptic curves. … I can recommend this book for both cryptographers and mathematicians doing either their Ph.D. or Master’s … I enjoyed reading and studying this book and will be glad to have it as a future reference.
—IACR book reviews, April 2010

Praise for the First Edition
There are already a number of books about elliptic curves, but this new offering by Washington is definitely among the best of them. It gives a rigorous though relatively elementary development of the theory of elliptic curves, with emphasis on those aspects of the theory most relevant for an understanding of elliptic curve cryptography. … an excellent companion to the books of Silverman and Blake, Seroussi and Smart. It would be a fine asset to any library or collection.
Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2004e

Washington … has found just the right level of abstraction for a first book … . Notably, he offers the most lucid and concrete account ever of the perpetually mysterious Shafarevich–Tate group. A pleasure to read! Summing Up: Highly recommended.
CHOICE, March 2004

… a nice, relatively complete, elementary account of elliptic curves.

By G. Sanders on July 31, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I own both the first and second editions of this book. I am an amateur mathetician; I don't think there is a siginicant difference in the two editions, if you are a non-professional like me. They are both excellent books, and almost exponentially inrease in difficulty as one gets further into them. The writing is less dense, and more amateur-friendly, than Washington's other famous book on cyclotomtic theory. There is some surprising humor in "Elliptic Curves" too. Washington makes a clever pun on Fermat's marginalia. I would gladly recommend either addition---unless you are a Faltings to begin with.
