On a theorem of Mestre and Schoof
Journal de Théorie des Nombres de Bordeaux, Volume 22 (2010) no. 2, pp. 353-358.

A well known theorem of Mestre and Schoof implies that the order of an elliptic curve E over a prime field 𝔽 q can be uniquely determined by computing the orders of a few points on E and its quadratic twist, provided that q>229. We extend this result to all finite fields with q>49, and all prime fields with q>29.

Un théorème bien connu de Mestre et Schoof implique que la cardinalité d’une courbe elliptique E définie sur un corps premier 𝔽 q peut être déterminée de manière univoque en calculant les ordres de quelques points sur E et sur sa tordue quadratique, à condition que q>229. Nous étendons ce résultat à tous les corps finis avec q>49, et tous les corps premiers avec q>29.
