roblem Description: Being a some constant, further assume that we are in a factor ring (basically all operations modulo some sumber p). Note, that the division below is a multiplication by the modular inverse. You always have to start with x=9. Consider the following recursive formula: Code: new_x = (x²1)² / (4*x*(x²+a*x+1)) How often do you have to perform this operation to get a specific x (basically getting the new_x and feeding it back into the formula to get another new_x, and so on)? Note: You can start multiple such chains beginning at x=9, and add the resulting x values using the addition algorithm from http://en.wikipedia....ontgomery_curve (Montgomery arithmetic section). Note, that the x value, is the value you get at the end of such calculationchain, and the z value is always 1.

The winner is the first person to post such formula in private. The formula must work in all cases, and be comutationally feasible
