Abstract :

I will discuss the application of p-adic L-functions to the explicit construction of rational points on elliptic curves, focusing on algorithmic aspects.

I hope to cover in varying detail: classical, p-adic and overconvergent modular forms;

Heegner and Stark-Heegner points on elliptic curves; p-adic L-functions associated to modular forms and elliptic curves.
