In this paper we use the Hessian form of an elliptic curve and show that it offers some performance advantages over the standard representation. In particular when a processor allows the evaluation of a number of field multiplications in parallel (either via separate ALU's, a SIMD type operation or a pipelined multiplication unit) one can obtain a performance advantage of around forty percent.
