$\mathscr{L}$-invariants and Shimura curves

### Samit Dasgupta and Matthew Greenberg

Vol. 6 (2012), No. 3, 455–485
##### Abstract

In earlier work, the second named author described how to extract Darmon-style $\mathsc{ℒ}$-invariants from modular forms on Shimura curves that are special at $p$. In this paper, we show that these $\mathsc{ℒ}$-invariants are preserved by the Jacquet–Langlands correspondence. As a consequence, we prove the second named author’s period conjecture in the case where the base field is $ℚ$. As a further application of our methods, we use integrals of Hida families to describe Stark–Heegner points in terms of a certain Abel–Jacobi map.
