### Elliptic Curves over the Real Numbers

Interact: please open in CoCalc

Figure 3.2 Play around with different values for a and b and note how the curve changes. You can choose a between -10 and

3, and b between -10 and 10, because this is the range where you can see something happening. Also note that this program

only lets you choose integers for a and b, although real numbers are actually allowed for a curve over the real numbers. This

is because real numbers for a and b would make the output ugly.
