== what is secp256k1 ? == What is '''secp256k1''' (as mentioned in the Rosetta Codes task's preamble:
::: ''You will use the a and b parameters of secp256k1, ... ''.

I think that's a reference to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Secp256k1 --[[User:Rdm|Rdm]] ([[User talk:Rdm|talk]]) 00:33, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
== multiple additions vs. multiplication == (Regarding the ''extra credit'' part of the task.)
Has anybody done more research on performing '''N''' additions versus multiplication (as the '''EchoLisp''' example has done?
There certainly seems to be a difference on how the ''multiplication'' is implemented. -- [[User:Gerard Schildberger|Gerard Schildberger]] ([[User talk:Gerard Schildberger|talk]]) 22:25, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Initially, I performed '''N''' additions (via the '''add''' function) and kept getting much different results than the other programming examples (for 12345 repetitions).
I think it would be beneficial if the first ten multiples (1 ──► 12) would be shown so we could compare ''true addition'' via ''multiplicative'' results. -- [[User:Gerard Schildberger|Gerard Schildberger]] ([[User talk:Gerard Schildberger|talk]]) 22:32, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
==First formula now invisible on standard OS X browsers== May need tidying up to achieve formula visibility on the OS X platform. Problems may include flanking of LateX expressions with redundant white space inside <math> tags [[User:Hout|Hout]] ([[User talk:Hout|talk]]) 13:25, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Specifically, the formula y^2 = x^3 + a x + b was hidden to most browsers by an under-tested cosmetic edit at 20:19, 7 June 2016 [[User:Hout|Hout]] ([[User talk:Hout|talk]]) 19:13, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
