FORMULA

P=(0, 0), 2P=(1, 0); if kP = (a, b) then (k+1)P = (a' = (b^2 - a^3)/a^2, b' = -1 - b*a'/a).

a(n) = A028940(2n). - Seiichi Manyama, Nov 19 2016

0 = a(n)*a(n+6) - 5*a(n+1)*a(n+5) + 4*a(n+2)*a(n+4) - 20*a(n+3)^2 for all n in Z. a(n) = A006720(n+1)*A006720(n+2). - Michael Somos, Apr 12 2020

EXAMPLE

4P =(2, -3).

a(3) = 6 = 2*3 = A006720(4)*A006720(5). - Michael Somos, Apr 12 2020
