Required methods

fn random(rng: impl RngCore) -> Self

Returns an element chosen uniformly at random from the non-identity elements of this group.

This function is non-deterministic, and samples from the user-provided RNG.

fn identity() -> Self

Returns the additive identity, also known as the "neutral element".

fn generator() -> Self

Returns a fixed generator of the prime-order subgroup.

fn is_identity(&self) -> Choice

Determines if this point is the identity.

#[must_use]fn double(&self) -> Self

Doubles this element.
