 Nonadjacent Radix-$\tau$ Expansions of Integers in Euclidean Imaginary Quadratic Number Fields In his seminal papers, Koblitz proposed curves for cryptographic use. For fast operations on these curves, these papers also initiated a study of the radix-$\tau$ expansion of integers in the number fields $\Q(\sqrt{-3})$ and $\Q(\sqrt{-7})$. The (window) nonadjacent form of $\tau$-expansion of integers in $\Q(\sqrt{-7})$ was first investigated by Solinas. For integers in $\Q(\sqrt{-3})$, the nonadjacent form and the window nonadjacent form of the $\tau$-expansion were studied. These are used for efficient point multiplications on Koblitz curves. In this paper, we complete the picture by producing the (window) nonadjacent radix-$\tau$ expansions for integers in all Euclidean imaginary quadratic number fields.
