By the classical theory of complex multiplication, the Klein $j$-invariant takes algebraic
values at CM points. In their seminal work on singular moduli, Gross and Zagier gave a
factorization of the difference between two such values, which can be viewed as the exponential
of a special value of a Green's function on the upper half plane. From numerical computations,
they conjectured that the special values of certain higher Green's functions also enjoy similar
algebraicity property. We will revisit this conjecture and discuss some recent progress.
