Abstract: The Hilbert modular fourfold determined by the totally real quartic number field $ k$ is a desingularization of a natural compactification of the quotient space $ \Gamma_k \backslash {\mathcal H}^4$, where $ \Gamma_k=$PSL$ _2({\mathcal O}_k)$ acts on $ {\mathcal H}^4$ by fractional linear transformations via the four embeddings of $ k$ into $ \bf R$. The arithmetic genus, equal to one plus the dimension of the space of Hilbert modular cusp forms of weight $ (2,2,2,2)$, is a birational invariant useful in the classification of these varieties. In this work, we describe an algorithm allowing for the automated computation of the arithmetic genus and give sample results.
