Expand description

This trait represents an element of a cryptographic group.

Required Associated Types§

Scalars modulo the order of this group’s scalar field.

Required Methods§

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.

Returns the additive identity, also known as the “neutral element”.

Returns a fixed generator of the prime-order subgroup.

Determines if this point is the identity.

Doubles this element.
