```
sage: E = EllipticCurve([0,0,0,-15,22])
sage: show(E)
sage: K1.<a> = QuadraticField(3)
sage: E1 = EllipticCurve(K1,[0,0,0,-15,22])
sage: show(E1)
sage: E.torsion_subgroup()
Torsion Subgroup isomorphic to Z/6 associated to the Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 - 15*x + 22 over Rational Field
sage: E1.torsion_subgroup()
Torsion Subgroup isomorphic to Z/2 + Z/6 associated to the Elliptic Curve defined by y^2 = x^3 + (-15)*x + 22 over Number Field in a with defining polynomial x^2 - 3
sage: table(E1.torsion_subgroup().list(),frame="true").transpose()
