ratpoints: Find rational points on hyperelliptic curves¶
Michael Stoll’s program which searches for rational points on hyperelliptic curves.
NOTE: the ratpoints package has been assimilated by PARI/GP. Therefore, this package (as Sage package) is deprecated. In the future, it will be removed from Sage.
Special Update/Build Instructions¶
Note on SSE2 instructions¶
On several architectures, the SSE2 instructions used by ratpoints cause compiler errors. In the case that ratpoints fails to build with SSE2 instructions enabled, the build is repeated with SSE2 disabled.
Equivalent System Packages¶
$ sudo pacman -S ratpoints
$ conda install ratpoints
$ sudo apt-get install ratpoints
$ nix-env --install ratpoints
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because spkg-configure.m4 has not been written for this package; see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/27330
