I've been reading Mander's & Adleman's paper on "NP-Complete decision problems for binary quadratics" (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0022000078900442?np=y). Could someone help me understand in more detail exactly how to 'convert' an instance of SAT to a quad. Diophantine equation?
