We prove quantitative nonvanishing theorems for central values and central derivatives of L-series associated to canonical Hecke characters of imaginary quadratic fields. These results have applications to the study of Chow groups of Kuga-Sato varieties. Some key ingredients in the proofs are bounds for torsion in class groups obtained recently by Ellenberg and Venkatesh , and subconvexity bounds for automorphic L-functions due to Duke, Friedlander, and Iwaniec . © The Author 2007.
