Rigid meromorphic cocycles
Last updated: 1 August 2018
Henri Darmon and I wrote a Magma package to compute spaces of rigid meromorphic cocycles, as introduced in our paper 'Singular moduli for real quadratic fields'. It computes the following objects:
1) Rigid meromorphic cocycles attached to an RM point.
2) Their cuspidal values.
3) Their RM values.
4) Stark-Heegner points on elliptic curves, coming from to their parabolic lifting obstructions.
The code, and some instructions, may be found here.

Overconvergent modular forms
Last updated: 14 April 2018
This code builds on the code of Alan Lauder. It has two main branches, which compute:
1) The computation of spaces of overconvergent modular forms at integer weights, for any prime p, as well as routines to compute eigenforms, projections, and Chow-Heegner points on elliptic curves.
2) The computation of spaces of overconvergent modular forms at the boundary of weight space.
The code, and some instructions, may be found here.
