Abstract/Description: Let $N$ be a positive integer. We first discuss a method for computing intersection numbers between subspaces of $S_{2}(Gamma_{0}(N),C)$. Then we present a new method for computing a basis of q-expansions for $S_{2}(Gamma_{0}(N),Q)$, describe an algorithm for saturating such a basis in $S_{2}(Gamma_{0}(N),Z)$, and show how these results have applications to computing congruence primes and studying cancellations in the conjectural Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer formula.
