Abstract

Geometric intuition suggests that the N\'{e}ron--Tate height of Heegner points on a rational elliptic curve $E$ should be asymptotically governed by the degree of its modular parametrisation. In this paper, we show that this geometric intuition asymptotically holds on average over a subset of discriminants. We also study the asymptotic behaviour of traces of Heegner points on average over a subset of discriminants and find a difference according to the rank of the elliptic curve. By the Gross--Zagier formulae, such heights are related to the special value at the critical point for either the derivative of the Rankin--Selberg convolution of $E$ with a certain weight one theta series attached to the principal ideal class of an imaginary quadratic field or the twisted $L$-function of $E$ by a quadratic Dirichlet character. Asymptotic formulae for the first moments associated with these $L$-series and $L$-functions are proved, and experimental results are discussed. The appendix contains some conjectural applications of our results to the problem of the discretisation of odd quadratic twists of elliptic curves.
