Elliptic curves over a general ring#
Sage defines an elliptic curve over a ring \(R\) as a Weierstrass Model with five coefficients \([a_1,a_2,a_3,a_4,a_6]\) in \(R\) given by
Note that the (usual) scheme-theoretic definition of an elliptic curve over \(R\) would require the discriminant to be a unit in \(R\); Sage only imposes that the discriminant is non-zero. Also note that in Magma, “Weierstrass Model” refers to a model with \(a_1=a_2=a_3=0\), which is called Short Weierstrass Model in Sage; these do not always exist in characteristics 2 and 3.
EXAMPLES:
We construct an elliptic curve over an elaborate base ring:
sage: p, a, b = 97, 1, 3
sage: R.<u> = GF(p)[]
sage: S.<v> = R[]
sage: T = S.fraction_field()
sage: E = EllipticCurve(T, [a, b]); E

- division_polynomial(m, x=None, two_torsion_multiplicity=2, force_evaluate=None)#
Return the \(m^{th}\) division polynomial of this elliptic curve evaluated at \(x\).
The division polynomial is cached if \(x\) is
None
.INPUT:
m
– positive integer.x
– optional ring element to use as the \(x\) variable. If \(x\) isNone
(omitted), then a new polynomial ring will be constructed over the base ring of the elliptic curve, and its generator will be used as \(x\). Note that \(x\) does not need to be a generator of a polynomial ring; any ring element works. This permits fast calculation of the torsion polynomial evaluated on any element of a ring.two_torsion_multiplicity
– 0, 1, or 2If 0: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a univariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which omits factors whose roots are the \(x\)-coordinates of the \(2\)-torsion points. When \(x\) is notNone
, the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.If 2: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a univariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which includes a factor of degree 3 whose roots are the \(x\)-coordinates of the \(2\)-torsion points. Similarly, when \(x\) is notNone
, the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.If 1: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a bivariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which includes a factor \(2y+a_1x+a_3\) having simple zeros at the \(2\)-torsion points. When \(x\) is notNone
, it should be a tuple of length 2, and the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.force_evaluate
(optional) – 0, 1, or 2By default, this method makes use of previously cached generic division polynomials to compute the value of the polynomial at a given element \(x\) whenever it appears beneficial to do so. Explicitly setting this flag overrides the default behavior.
Note that the complexity of evaluating a generic division polynomial scales much worse than that of computing the value at a point directly (using the recursive formulas), hence setting this flag can be detrimental to performance.
If 0: Do not use cached generic division polynomials.
If 1: If the generic division polynomial for this \(m\) has been cached before, evaluate it at \(x\) to compute the result.
If 2: Compute the value at \(x\) by evaluating the generic division polynomial. If the generic \(m\)-division polynomial has not yet been cached, compute and cache it first.

This does not work, since when two_torsion_multiplicity is 1, we compute a bivariate polynomial, and must evaluate at a tuple of length 2:
sage: E.division_polynomial(4,z,1) Traceback (most recent call last): ...

- division_polynomial_0(n, x=None)#
Return the \(n^{th}\) torsion (division) polynomial, without the 2-torsion factor if \(n\) is even, as a polynomial in \(x\).
These are the polynomials \(g_n\) defined in [MT1991], but with the sign flipped for even \(n\), so that the leading coefficient is always positive.

– a ring element to use as the “x” variable orNone
(default:None
). IfNone
, then a new polynomial ring will be constructed over the base ring of the elliptic curve, and its generator will be used asx
. Note thatx
does not need to be a generator of a polynomial ring; any ring element is ok. This permits fast calculation of the torsion polynomial evaluated on any element of a ring.

An example to illustrate the relationship with torsion points:
sage: F = GF(11) sage: E = EllipticCurve(F, [0, 2]); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 2 over Finite Field of size 11 sage: f = E.division_polynomial_0(5); f 5*x^12 + x^9 + 8*x^6 + 4*x^3 + 7 sage: f.factor() (5) * (x^2 + 5) * (x^2 + 2*x + 5) * (x^2 + 5*x + 7) * (x^2 + 7*x + 7) * (x^2 + 9*x + 5) * (x^2 + 10*x + 7)
This indicates that the \(x\)-coordinates of all the 5-torsion points of \(E\) are in \(\GF{11^2}\), and therefore the \(y\)-coordinates are in \(\GF{11^4}\):
sage: K = GF(11^4, 'a') sage: X = E.change_ring(K) sage: f = X.division_polynomial_0(5) sage: x_coords = f.roots(multiplicities=False); x_coords [10*a^3 + 4*a^2 + 5*a + 6, 9*a^3 + 8*a^2 + 10*a + 8, 8*a^3 + a^2 + 4*a + 10, 8*a^3 + a^2 + 4*a + 8, 8*a^3 + a^2 + 4*a + 4, 6*a^3 + 9*a^2 + 3*a + 4, 5*a^3 + 2*a^2 + 8*a + 7, 3*a^3 + 10*a^2 + 7*a + 8, 3*a^3 + 10*a^2 + 7*a + 3, 3*a^3 + 10*a^2 + 7*a + 1, 2*a^3 + 3*a^2 + a + 7, a^3 + 7*a^2 + 6*a]
Now we check that these are exactly the \(x\)-coordinates of the 5-torsion points of \(E\):

The roots of the polynomial are the \(x\)-coordinates of the points \(P\) such that \(mP=0\) but \(2P\not=0\):

This functionality is implemented in certain derived classes, such as EllipticCurve_rational_field.

- is_isomorphic(other, field=None)#
Return whether or not self is isomorphic to other.
INPUT:
other
– another elliptic curve.field
(default None) – a field into which the coefficients of the curves may be coerced (by default, uses the base field of the curves).
OUTPUT:
(bool) True if there is an isomorphism from curve
self

defined overfield
.EXAMPLES:

See also
lift_x()
to find the point(s) with a given \(x\)-coordinate. This function may be useful in cases where testing an element of the base field for being a square is faster than finding its square root.EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a'); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 - x over Rational Field sage: E.is_x_coord(1) True sage: E.is_x_coord(2) True
There are no rational points with x-coordinate 3:
sage: E.is_x_coord(3) False
However, there are such points in \(E(\RR)\):
sage: E.change_ring(RR).is_x_coord(3) True
And of course it always works in \(E(\CC)\):

We can also handle injections to different base rings:

.EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve_from_j(QQ(0)) # a curve with j=0 over QQ sage: F = EllipticCurve('27a3') # should be the same one sage: E.isomorphisms(F) [Elliptic-curve endomorphism of Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 over Rational Field Via: (u,r,s,t) = (1, 0, 0, 0), Elliptic-curve endomorphism of Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 over Rational Field Via: (u,r,s,t) = (-1, 0, 0, -1)]
We can also find isomorphisms defined over extension fields:
sage: E = EllipticCurve(GF(7),[0,0,0,1,1]) sage: F = EllipticCurve(GF(7),[0,0,0,1,-1]) sage: E.isomorphisms(F) [] sage: E.isomorphisms(F,GF(49,'a')) [Elliptic-curve morphism: From: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + x + 1 over Finite Field in a of size 7^2 To: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + x + 6 over Finite Field in a of size 7^2 Via: (u,r,s,t) = (a + 3, 0, 0, 0), Elliptic-curve morphism: From: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + x + 1 over Finite Field in a of size 7^2 To: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + x + 6 over Finite Field in a of size 7^2 Via: (u,r,s,t) = (6*a + 4, 0, 0, 0)]
- j_invariant()#
Return the \(j\)-invariant of this elliptic curve.
This method is cached.
EXAMPLES:

- lift_x(x, all=False, extend=False)#
Return one or all points with given \(x\)-coordinate.
INPUT:
x
– an element of the base ring of the curve, or of an extension.all
(bool, default False) – if True, return a (possibly empty) list of all points; if False, return just one point, or raise a ValueError if there are none.extend
(bool, default False) –if
False
, extend the base if necessary and possible to include \(x\), and only return point(s) defined over this ring, or raise an error when there are none with this \(x\)-coordinate;If
True
, the base ring will be extended if necessary to contain the \(y\)-coordinates of the point(s) with this \(x\)-coordinate, in addition to a possible base change to include \(x\).
OUTPUT:
A point or list of up to 2 points on this curve, or a base-change of this curve to a larger ring.
See also
EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a'); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 - x over Rational Field sage: E.lift_x(1) (1 : 0 : 1) sage: E.lift_x(2) (2 : 2 : 1) sage: E.lift_x(1/4, all=True) [(1/4 : -3/8 : 1), (1/4 : -5/8 : 1)]
There are no rational points with \(x\)-coordinate 3:
sage: E.lift_x(3) Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: No point with x-coordinate 3 on Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 - x over Rational Field
We can use the
extend
parameter to make the necessary quadratic extension. Note that in such cases the returned point is a point on a new curve object, the result of changing the base ring to the parent of \(x\):sage: P = E.lift_x(3, extend=True); P (3 : y : 1) sage: P.curve() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 + (-1)*x over Number Field in y with defining polynomial y^2 + y - 24
Or we can extend scalars. There are two such points in \(E(\RR)\):
sage: E.change_ring(RR).lift_x(3, all=True) [(3.00000000000000 : 4.42442890089805 : 1.00000000000000), (3.00000000000000 : -5.42442890089805 : 1.00000000000000)]
And of course it always works in \(E(\CC)\):
sage: E.change_ring(RR).lift_x(.5, all=True) [] sage: E.change_ring(CC).lift_x(.5) (0.500000000000000 : -0.500000000000000 + 0.353553390593274*I : 1.00000000000000)
In this example we start with a curve defined over \(\QQ\) which has no rational points with \(x=0\), but using
extend = True
we can construct such a point over a quadratic field:sage: E = EllipticCurve([0,0,0,0,2]); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 2 over Rational Field sage: P = E.lift_x(0, extend=True); P (0 : y : 1) sage: P.curve() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 2 over Number Field in y with defining polynomial y^2 - 2
We can perform these operations over finite fields too:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a').change_ring(GF(17)); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 + 16*x over Finite Field of size 17 sage: E.lift_x(7) (7 : 11 : 1) sage: E.lift_x(3) Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: No point with x-coordinate 3 on Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 + 16*x over Finite Field of size 17
Note that there is only one lift with \(x\)-coordinate 10 in \(E(\GF{17})\):
sage: E.lift_x(10, all=True) [(10 : 8 : 1)]
We can lift over more exotic rings too. If the supplied x value is in an extension of the base, note that the point returned is on the base-extended curve:
sage: E = EllipticCurve('37a') sage: P = E.lift_x(pAdicField(17, 5)(6)); P (6 + O(17^5) : 2 + 16*17 + 16*17^2 + 16*17^3 + 16*17^4 + O(17^5) : 1 + O(17^5)) sage: P.curve() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + (1+O(17^5))*y = x^3 + (16+16*17+16*17^2+16*17^3+16*17^4+O(17^5))*x over 17-adic Field with capped relative precision 5 sage: K.<t> = PowerSeriesRing(QQ, 't', 5) sage: P = E.lift_x(1+t); P (1 + t : 2*t - t^2 + 5*t^3 - 21*t^4 + O(t^5) : 1) sage: K.<a> = GF(16) sage: P = E.change_ring(K).lift_x(a^3); P (a^3 : a^3 + a : 1) sage: P.curve() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 + y = x^3 + x over Finite Field in a of size 2^4
We can extend the base field to include the associated \(y\) value(s):
sage: E = EllipticCurve([0,0,0,0,2]); E Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 2 over Rational Field sage: x = polygen(QQ) sage: P = E.lift_x(x, extend=True); P (x : y : 1)
This point is a generic point on E:
sage: P.curve() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 2 over Univariate Quotient Polynomial Ring in y over Fraction Field of Univariate Polynomial Ring in x over Rational Field with modulus y^2 - x^3 - 2 sage: -P (x : -y : 1) sage: 2*P ((1/4*x^4 - 4*x)/(x^3 + 2) : ((1/8*x^6 + 5*x^3 - 4)/(x^6 + 4*x^3 + 4))*y : 1)
Check that trac ticket #30297 is fixed:
sage: K = Qp(5) sage: E = EllipticCurve([K(0), K(1)]) sage: E.lift_x(1, extend=True) (1 + O(5^20) : y + O(5^20) : 1 + O(5^20))

- montgomery_model(twisted=False, morphism=False)#
Return a (twisted or untwisted) Montgomery model for this elliptic curve, if possible.
A Montgomery curve is a smooth projective curve of the form
\[BY^2 = X^3 + AX^2 + X.\]The Montgomery curve is called untwisted if \(B=1\).
INPUT:
twisted

OUTPUT:
If
twisted

(the default), anEllipticCurve_generic
object encapsulating an untwisted Montgomery curve. Otherwise, aProjectivePlaneCurve
object encapsulating a (potentially twisted) Montgomery curve.If
morphism
isTrue
, this method returns a tuple consisting of such a curve together with an isomorphism of suitable type (eitherWeierstrassIsomorphism
orWeierstrassTransformationWithInverse
) from this curve to the Montgomery model.EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve(QQbar, '11a1') sage: E.montgomery_model() Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + (-1.953522420987248?)*x^2 + x over Algebraic Field

An isomorphism between the Montgomery and Weierstrass form can be obtained using the
morphism
parameter:sage: E.montgomery_model(morphism=True) (Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + (51*z2+190)*x^2 + x over Finite Field in z2 of size 431^2, Elliptic-curve morphism: From: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 7*x + 7 over Finite Field in z2 of size 431^2 To: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + (51*z2+190)*x^2 + x over Finite Field in z2 of size 431^2 Via: (u,r,s,t) = (64*z2 + 407, 159, 0, 0))
Not all elliptic curves have a Montgomery model over their field of definition:
sage: E = EllipticCurve(GF(257), [1,1]) sage: E.montgomery_model() Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + x + 1 over Finite Field of size 257 has no Montgomery model
sage: E = EllipticCurve(GF(257), [10,10]) sage: E.montgomery_model() Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 10*x + 10 over Finite Field of size 257 has no untwisted Montgomery model
However, as hinted by the error message, the latter curve does admit a twisted Montgomery model, which can be computed by passing
twisted=True
:sage: E.montgomery_model(twisted=True) Projective Plane Curve over Finite Field of size 257 defined by -x^3 + 8*x^2*z - 127*y^2*z - x*z^2
Since Sage internally represents elliptic curves as (long) Weierstrass curves, which do not feature the Montgomery \(B\) coefficient, the returned curve in this case is merely a
ProjectivePlaneCurve
rather than the usualEllipticCurve_generic
.Arithmetic on curves of this type is not implemented natively, but can easily be emulated by mapping back and forth to the corresponding Weierstrass curve:
sage: C, f = E.montgomery_model(twisted=True, morphism=True) sage: f Scheme morphism: From: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 10*x + 10 over Finite Field of size 257 To: Projective Plane Curve over Finite Field of size 257 defined by -x^3 + 8*x^2*z - 127*y^2*z - x*z^2 Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending (x : y : z) to (x + 116*z : -y : -85*z) sage: g = f.inverse(); g Scheme morphism: From: Projective Plane Curve over Finite Field of size 257 defined by -x^3 + 8*x^2*z - 127*y^2*z - x*z^2 To: Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 10*x + 10 over Finite Field of size 257 Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending (x : y : z) to (-85*x - 116*z : 85*y : z) sage: P = C(70, 8) sage: Q = C(17, 17) sage: P + Q # this doesn't work... Traceback (most recent call last): ... TypeError: unsupported operand parent(s) for +: ... sage: f(g(P) + g(Q)) # ...but this does (107 : 168 : 1)
Using the fact that the Weil pairing satisfies \(e(\psi(P),\psi(Q)) = e(P,Q)^{\deg\psi}\), even pairings can be emulated in this way (note that isomorphisms have degree \(1\)):
sage: F.<z2> = GF(257^2) sage: C_ = C.change_ring(F) sage: g_ = g.change_ring(F) sage: g_(P).order() 12 sage: T = C_(-7 * z2 - 57, 31 * z2 - 52, 1) sage: g_(T).order() 12 sage: g_(P).weil_pairing(g_(T), 12) 15*z2 + 204
Another alternative is to simply extend the base field enough for the curve to have an untwisted Montgomery model:
sage: C_ = E.change_ring(F).montgomery_model(); C_ Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + 249*x^2 + x over Finite Field in z2 of size 257^2 sage: h = C.defining_polynomial().change_ring(F); h -x^3 + 8*x^2*z - 127*y^2*z - x*z^2 sage: C_.is_isomorphic(EllipticCurve_from_cubic(h).codomain()) True

– a nonzero integerx_only
– boolean (default:False

is allowed to be negative (but not 0).
EXAMPLES:
sage: E = EllipticCurve([-1,3])
We verify that multiplication by 1 is just the identity:
sage: E.multiplication_by_m(1) (x, y)
Multiplication by 2 is more complicated:
sage: f = E.multiplication_by_m(2) sage: f ((x^4 + 2*x^2 - 24*x + 1)/(4*x^3 - 4*x + 12), (8*x^6*y - 40*x^4*y + 480*x^3*y - 40*x^2*y + 96*x*y - 568*y)/(64*x^6 - 128*x^4 + 384*x^3 + 64*x^2 - 384*x + 576))
Grab only the x-coordinate (less work):

We check that it works on a point:
sage: P = E([2,3]) sage: eval = lambda f,P: [fi(P[0],P[1]) for fi in f] sage: assert E(eval(f,P)) == 2*P
We do the same but with multiplication by 3:
sage: f = E.multiplication_by_m(3) sage: assert E(eval(f,P)) == 3*P
And the same with multiplication by 4:
sage: f = E.multiplication_by_m(4) sage: assert E(eval(f,P)) == 4*P
And the same with multiplication by -1,-2,-3,-4:

- multiplication_by_m_isogeny(m)#
Return the

NOTE: This function is currently much slower than the result of
self.multiplication_by_m()
, because constructing an isogeny precomputes a significant amount of information. See trac ticket #7368 and trac ticket #8014 for the status of improving this situation.INPUT:

OUTPUT:
An elliptic curve.
If
complete_cube=True
: Return a model of the form \(y^2 = x^3 + a*x + b\) for this curve. The characteristic must not be 2; in characteristic 3, it is only possible if \(b_2=0\).If

- torsion_polynomial(m, x=None, two_torsion_multiplicity=2, force_evaluate=None)#
Return the \(m^{th}\) division polynomial of this elliptic curve evaluated at \(x\).
The division polynomial is cached if \(x\) is
None
.INPUT:
m
– positive integer.x
– optional ring element to use as the \(x\) variable. If \(x\) isNone
(omitted), then a new polynomial ring will be constructed over the base ring of the elliptic curve, and its generator will be used as \(x\). Note that \(x\) does not need to be a generator of a polynomial ring; any ring element works. This permits fast calculation of the torsion polynomial evaluated on any element of a ring.two_torsion_multiplicity
– 0, 1, or 2If 0: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a univariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which omits factors whose roots are the \(x\)-coordinates of the \(2\)-torsion points. When \(x\) is notNone
, the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.If 2: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a univariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which includes a factor of degree 3 whose roots are the \(x\)-coordinates of the \(2\)-torsion points. Similarly, when \(x\) is notNone
, the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.If 1: For even \(m\) when \(x\) is
None
, a bivariate polynomial over the base ring of the curve is returned, which includes a factor \(2y+a_1x+a_3\) having simple zeros at the \(2\)-torsion points. When \(x\) is notNone
, it should be a tuple of length 2, and the evaluation of such a polynomial at \(x\) is returned.force_evaluate
(optional) – 0, 1, or 2By default, this method makes use of previously cached generic division polynomials to compute the value of the polynomial at a given element \(x\) whenever it appears beneficial to do so. Explicitly setting this flag overrides the default behavior.
Note that the complexity of evaluating a generic division polynomial scales much worse than that of computing the value at a point directly (using the recursive formulas), hence setting this flag can be detrimental to performance.
If 0: Do not use cached generic division polynomials.
If 1: If the generic division polynomial for this \(m\) has been cached before, evaluate it at \(x\) to compute the result.
If 2: Compute the value at \(x\) by evaluating the generic division polynomial. If the generic \(m\)-division polynomial has not yet been cached, compute and cache it first.

sage: E = EllipticCurve([0, -1, 1, -10, -20]) sage: R.<z>=PolynomialRing(QQ) sage: E.division_polynomial(4,z,0) 2*z^6 - 4*z^5 - 100*z^4 - 790*z^3 - 210*z^2 - 1496*z - 5821 sage: E.division_polynomial(4,z) 8*z^9 - 24*z^8 - 464*z^7 - 2758*z^6 + 6636*z^5 + 34356*z^4 + 53510*z^3 + 99714*z^2 + 351024*z + 459859
This does not work, since when two_torsion_multiplicity is 1, we compute a bivariate polynomial, and must evaluate at a tuple of length 2:
sage: E.division_polynomial(4,z,1) Traceback (most recent call last): ... ValueError: x should be a tuple of length 2 (or None) when two_torsion_multiplicity is 1 sage: R.<z,w>=PolynomialRing(QQ,2) sage: E.division_polynomial(4,(z,w),1).factor() (2*w + 1) * (2*z^6 - 4*z^5 - 100*z^4 - 790*z^3 - 210*z^2 - 1496*z - 5821)
We can also evaluate this bivariate polynomial at a point:
sage: P = E(5,5) sage: E.division_polynomial(4,P,two_torsion_multiplicity=1) -1771561
- two_division_polynomial(x=None)#
Return the 2-division polynomial of this elliptic curve evaluated at
x
.INPUT:
x
– optional ring element to use as the \(x\) variable. Ifx
isNone
, then a new polynomial ring will be constructed over the base ring of the elliptic curve, and its generator will be used asx
. Note thatx
does not need to be a generator of a polynomial ring; any ring element is acceptable. This permits fast calculation of the torsion polynomial evaluated on any element of a ring.
