# Elliptic curves

```
F.<x> = GF(2)[]
K.<a> = GF(2**163, name='a', modulus=x^163 + x^7 + x^6 + x^3 +1 )
b = 0x000000020A601907B8C953CA1481EB10512F78744A3205FD
b1 = F(b.digits(2))
xx1 = 0x00000003F0EBA16286A2D57EA0991168D4994637E8343E36
yy1 = 0x00000000D51FBC6C71A0094FA2CDD545B11C5C0C797324F1
xx2 = F(xx1.digits(2))
yy2 = F(yy1.digits(2))
E = EllipticCurve(K,[1,1,0,0,b1])
punto = E([xx2,yy2])
punto.order()
```

**When i try to find the order I got this error!**

Running this code consumed all the RAM in my computer. Perhaps this has something to do with the error. What is your question?
