Conditionally on the Fontaine-Mazur, Hodge, and Tate conjectures, there is an algorithm that finds all rational points on any curve of genus at least 2 over a number field. The algorithm uses Faltings's original proof of the finiteness of rational points, along with an analytic bound on the degree of an isogeny due to Masser and W├╝stholz. (Work in progress with Levent Alpoge.)
