Primes Generated by Elliptic Curves


For a rational elliptic curve in Weierstrass form, Chudnovsky and Chudnovsky considered the likelihood that the denominators of the x-coordinates of the multiples of a rational point are squares of primes. Assuming the point is the image of a rational point under an isogeny, we use Siegel’s Theorem to prove that only finitely many primes will arise. The… (More)
