Due to its complete addition law, the Edwards form for elliptic curves is in some applications a more convenient form than the well-known Weierstrass form. In this thesis, the difference between both forms is described and special properties of the Edwards curves are treated. A rational map between both forms is constructed in order to show Edwards curves are birationally equivalent to Weierstrass curves if and only if the Weierstrass curve has a point of order 4. Using this map, it can be shown that an Edwards curve is supersingular if and only if the corresponding Legendre form is supersingular.
