comment Doubling a point on an elliptic curve
Yep, that worked. We also just received a mail that they didn't mean to put a long Weierstrass curve in the assignment... but anyway, thanks a lot!

comment Vigenere ciphers : Need help for math analysis
@EkoJunaidiSalam in math you don't use 'looping'. This is done with recursion. If you take a close look at my formula for $M_i$, you see that its second case ($i\ge|K|$) is recursive: if you want to apply it, you'll first need to compute $M_{i-|K|}$. If $i-|K| < |K|$ you can apply the first rule, otherwise you'll first have to compute $M_{i-|K|-|K|}$, et cetera... The formula for decryption relies on itself.

@EkoJunaidiSalam please clarify. $i$ is a number, not a character. About which formula are you talking exactly?

comment Vigenere ciphers : Need help for math analysis
@EkoJunaidiSalam why do you think so? For $i<|K|$ we have $M_i=C_i-K_i=M_i+K_i-K_i=M_i$ and for $i\ge|K|$ we have $M_i=C_i-M_{i-|K|} = M_i + M_{i-|K|} - M_{i-|K|} = M_i$.

comment Vigenere ciphers : Need help for math analysis
@EkoJunaidiSalam you're right, I had forgotten your question a bit. $C_i$ should've been $M_i$ in two places; I edited the answer.

comment How does $g$ being a generator imply Diffie-Hellman's correctness?
@fgrieu absolutely. I did not answer the question the OP asked, only addressed the problem he turned out to have.
