RatpointsThis is a program that uses an optimized quadratic sieve algorithm in order to find rational points on hyperelliptic curves. The program is distributed under the GNU LGPL. Read the documentation. arXiv The current version is ratpoints2.0.1, July 7, 2008. It fixes a bug that prevented the '1' option to work properly. Download ratpoints2.0.1.tar.gz. 

JPointsJpoints searches for rational points on the Jacobian of a genus 2 curve. This is done by searching for points on the associated Kummer Surface that lift to the Jacobian. The implementation is based on a fast quadratic sieve algorithm. Note: The current version 1.1 fixes a bug that caused jpoints1.0 to miss points in some (rather specific) cases (August 10, 2006).
