I want to find out the Cremona label of the elliptic curve given by $$y^2 = x^3 - x^2 - 1008x + 48512.$$ I have tried the following commands in Sage but getting errors.

1) E=EllipticCurve(QQ,[0, -1, 0, -1008, 48512]);E.cremona_label()

2) d=CremonaDatabase().data_from_coefficients([0, -1, 0, -1008, 48512]) d['cremona_label']

I would like to know why I am getting errors and also how to find out the Cremona label of the above elliptic curve.

You need to install the optional package database_cremona_ellcurve which contains many more curves than the default database included into Sage:

sage -i database_cremona_ellcurve

Then your first try works:

sage: E = EllipticCurve(QQ,[0, -1, 0, -1008, 48512])
sage: E.cremona_label()

I know this is a very old thread. My recent work on EC and MPC has led me here. I am using SageMath 9.2 on Windows and command

sage -i database_cremona_ellcurve

does not work.

The process

make[8]: Entering directory '/opt/sagemath-9.2'
make build/make/Makefile --stop

goes on forever and I have to reboot Windows (at 'make[2xxx]') to get rid of all the 'make' process.

What have I done wrong?

Try querying the LMFDB (L-functions and modular forms database)
