Division Polynomials and Intersection of Projective Torsion Points

Given two elliptic curves, to each there is associated a quotient map that identifies opposite elements. I will present some results about the intersection of their corresponding projective torsion points. The division polynomials and Jordan's totient function will also be discussed. This is a joint work with Fedor Bogomolov.
