We look at arithmetic progressions on elliptic curves known as Huff curves. By an arithmetic progression on an elliptic curve, we mean that either the x or y-coordinates of a sequence of rational points on the curve form an arithmetic progression. Previous work has found arithmetic progressions on Weierstrass curves, quartic curves, Edwards curves, and genus 2 curves. We find an infinite number of Huff curves with an arithmetic progression of length 9.
