## Abstract

The theorems of Gross--Zagier and Zhang relate the N\'eron--Tate heights of complex multiplication points on the modular curve $X_0(N)$ (and on Shimura curve analogues) with the central derivatives of automorphic $L$-function. We extend these results to include certain CM points on modular curves of the form $X(\Gamma_0(M)\cap\Gamma_1(S))$ (and on Shimura curve analogues). These results are motivated by applications to Hida theory that can be found in the companion article "Central derivatives of $L$-functions in Hida families", Math.\ Ann.\ \textbf{399}(2007), 803--818.
