We then show how our general technique leads to a new algorithm which is about twice as fast as the Duursma-Lee method.
These ideas are then used for elliptic and hyperelliptic curves in characteristic 2 with very efficient results. In particular, the hyperelliptic case is faster than all previously known pairing algorithms.
