### Abstract

We present a variant of an algorithm of Oliver Atkin for counting the number of points on an elliptic curve over a finite field. We describe an implementation of this algorithm for prime fields. We report on the use of this implementation to count the number of points on a curve over F_{p}, where p is a 375-digit prime.
