In his seminal paper in 2001, Henri Darmon proposed a systematic construction of p-adic points, viz. Stark–Heegner points, on elliptic curves over the rational numbers. In this talk, I will report on the construction of p-adic cohomology classes/cycles in the Harris–Soudry–Taylor representation associated to a Bianchi cusp form, building on the ideas of Henri Darmon and Rotger–Seveso. These local cohomology classes are conjectured to be the restriction of global cohomology classes in an appropriate Bloch–Kato Selmer group and have consequences towards the Bloch–Kato–Beilinson conjecture as well as Gross–Zagier type results. This is based on a joint work with Chris Williams (Imperial College London).
