I tried to find it here: http://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/reference/curves/sage/schemes/elliptic_curves/ell_finite_field.html but I only found out there are some algorithms which you can choose as an optional argument. Is it the Schoof's algorithm?JanoutVWed, 18 Dec 2019 20:00:15 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/49070/
