Description (last modified by )
isogenies_prime_degree
only finds separable isogenies, so it never finds the Frobenius. This is not documented very well. It does find the Verschiebung for ordinary elliptic curves but not for supersingular elliptic curves. We clarify this in the documentation. We also add some examples and reorganize the existing examples.
Additionally, we simplify the logic of the isogenies_prime_degree()
wrapper a bit.
