Bounding the Size of Elliptic Curves on Subsets of F_p


We prove two related concentration inequalities concerning the points of elliptic curves contained within subsets of F_p^2. In particular we investigate the probability of a large difference between the portions of quadratic residues and non-residues in the image of f(S), where S is a subset of F_p and f is a cubic, or higher degree polynomial.
