### The Gross--Kohnen--Zagier theorem via $p$-adic uniformization

## Abstract

Let $S$ be a set of rational places of odd cardinality containing infinity and a rational prime $p$. We can associate to $S$ a Shimura curve $X$ defined over $\mathbb{Q}$. The Gross--Kohnen--Zagier theorem states that certain generating series of Heegner points of $X$ are modular forms of weight $3/2$ valued in the Jacobian of $X$. We will state this theorem and outline a new approach to proving it using the theory of $p$-adic uniformization and $p$-adic families of modular forms of half-integral weight. This is joint work with Lea Beneish, Henri Darmon, and Lennart Gehrmann.
