In his 1997 thesis K. Wildanger developed an efficient method for computing such points over the rational integers. We improve and generalize his ideas. Replacing his methods from the geometry of numbers by a class field theoretic approach based on Hasse we expect to get a much more powerful algorithm. (This is a report on work in progress.)
