The Gross-Kudla-Schoen modified diagonal cycle on the triple product of the modular curve with itself provides a wealth of arithmetic information about modular forms, including derivatives of complex L-functions, special values of p-adic L-functions, and points on elliptic curves, known as Chow-Heegner points. In this talk, I will discuss a formula expressing the p-adic logarithm of a Chow-Heegner point in terms of the coefficients of the ordinary projection of certain p-adic modular forms.
