Ok, as I understand it, zerocoin protocol is also based on math just as much as bitcoin. The formula is supposed to be c = gs hr (mod p) where c, g, h, p are known. When a zerocoin mint transaction occurs, it produces a signature 4 x 64 bytes. However, I am not able to find which part of the signature correlates to which number. The github coding annotation is also not helpful, as the noting of the signature says = params, coin, coin commintment, mhash. Could anyone please clarify me on this issues? I would like to understand how the math works behind the zerocoin protocol on my own transactions.

I cannot help you with this one, unfortunately, but I am commenting to keep your topic on top. Why? Because your question is actually 1/100 with some substance. Good luck in finding your answer.
