Abstract: Let $E_{/\mathbf Q}$ be an elliptic curve of conductor $N$ and let $f$ be the weight $2$ newform on $\Gamma _0(N)$ associated to it by modularity. Building on an idea of S. Zhang, an article by Darmon, Rotger, and Sols describes the construction of so-called Chow-Heegner points, $P_{T,f}\in E({\bar {\mathbf Q}})$, indexed by algebraic correspondences $T\subset X_0(N)\times X_0(N)$. It also gives an analytic formula, depending only on the image of $T$ in cohomology under the complex cycle class map, for calculating $P_{T,f}$ numerically via Chen’s theory of iterated integrals. The present work describes an algorithm based on this formula for computing the Chow-Heegner points to arbitrarily high complex accuracy, carries out the computation for all elliptic curves of rank $1$ and conductor $N< 100$ when the cycles $T$ arise from Hecke correspondences, and discusses several important variants of the basic construction.
