Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A058939 The elliptic divisibility sequence associated to the rational point of smallest known global height for rational elliptic curves: the curve is [ 0,0,0,-412,3316 ] and the point is [ -18,70 ]. 0

COMMENTS

The terms of the sequence are highly divisible by the primes 2,5 and 7. This is because it is trying to tell us the local heights at the primes where the point [ -18,70 ] has singular reduction on the elliptic curve [ 0,0,0,-412,3316 ].

The elliptic curve "280b1" is y^2 = x^3 - 412 * x + 3316. - Michael Somos, Feb 12 2012

FORMULA

a(2n+1) = a(n+2)*a(n)^3-a(n-1)*a(n+1)^3, a(2*n) = a(n)*(a(n+2)*a(n-1)^2-a(n-2)*a(n+1)^2)/a(2).

a(-n) = -a(n). a(n+2)*a(n-2) = 19600 * a(n+1)*a(n-1) + 1372000 * a(n)^2. a(n+3)*a(n-2) = -1372000 * a(n+2)*a(n-1) + 1920800000 * a(n+1)*a(n). - Michael Somos, Feb 12 2012
