Create a projective plane conic curve over a finite field.
See
Conic
for full documentation.EXAMPLES:
sage: K.<a> = FiniteField(9, 'a') sage: P.<X, Y, Z> = K[] sage: Conic(X^2 + Y^2 - a*Z^2) Projective Conic Curve over Finite Field in a of size 3^2 defined by X^2 + Y^2 + (-a)*Z^2
sage: P.<X, Y, Z> = FiniteField(5)[] sage: Conic(X^2 + Y^2 - 2*Z^2) Projective Conic Curve over Finite Field of size 5 defined by X^2 + Y^2 - 2*Z^2
- count_points(n)#
If the base field \(B\) of \(self\) is finite of order \(q\), then returns the number of points over \(\GF{q}, ..., \GF{q^n}\).
EXAMPLES:
sage: P.<x,y,z> = GF(3)[] sage: c = Curve(x^2+y^2+z^2); c Projective Conic Curve over Finite Field of size 3 defined by x^2 + y^2 + z^2 sage: c.count_points(4) [4, 10, 28, 82]
- has_rational_point(point=False, read_cache=True, algorithm='default')#
Always returns
True
because self has a point defined over its finite base field \(B\).If
point
is True, then returns a second output \(S\), which is a rational point if one exists.Points are cached. If
read_cache
is True, then cached information is used for the output if available. If no cached point is available orread_cache
is False, then random \(y\)-coordinates are tried ifself
is smooth and a singular point is returned otherwise.EXAMPLES:
