On The Elliptic Divisibility Sequences over Finite Fields

Authors: Osman Bizim


In this work we study elliptic divisibility sequences over finite fields. MorganWard in [11, 12] gave arithmetic theory of elliptic divisibility sequences. We study elliptic divisibility sequences, equivalence of these sequences and singular elliptic divisibility sequences over finite fields Fp, p > 3 is a prime.

Keywords: Elliptic divisibility sequences, equivalent sequences, singular sequences.
