### elementary question on ECDLP

If $\mathbb{F}_q$ is a finite field and the elliptic curve E is defined over finite field $\mathbb{F}_p$ such that ECDLP is hard in E($\mathbb{F}_p$), where $q, p$ are prime and $q \ll p$. Let T $\in ...

### Elliptic curves over proper variety over $\mathbf{F}_q$ isotrivial

Why is every elliptic curve over a proper (edit: smooth and geometrically connected) base over $\mathbf{F}_q$ isotrivial, i.e. is constant after base changing with $\bar{\mathbf{F}}_q$? If the moduli ...
