By Fred Diamond, Jerry Shurman

This e-book introduces the idea of modular types, from which all rational elliptic curves come up, with an eye fixed towards the Modularity Theorem. dialogue covers elliptic curves as advanced tori and as algebraic curves; modular curves as Riemann surfaces and as algebraic curves; Hecke operators and Atkin-Lehner idea; Hecke eigenforms and their mathematics homes; the Jacobians of modular curves and the Abelian kinds linked to Hecke eigenforms. because it provides those rules, the ebook states the Modularity Theorem in a variety of varieties, touching on them to one another and relating their purposes to quantity concept. The authors imagine no heritage in algebraic quantity conception and algebraic geometry. routines are incorporated.

**p-adic Numbers: An Introduction**

P-adic numbers are of serious theoretical value in quantity thought, in view that they permit using the language of research to check difficulties referring to toprime numbers and diophantine equations. additional, they provide a realm the place possible do issues which are similar to classical research, yet with effects which are particularly strange.

Let N be a positive integer. (a) The moduli space for Γ0 (N ) is S0 (N ) = {[Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] : τ ∈ H}. 5 Modular curves and moduli spaces 39 Two points [Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] and [Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] are equal if and only if Γ0 (N )τ = Γ0 (N )τ . Thus there is a bijection ∼ ψ0 : S0 (N ) −→ Y0 (N ), [C/Λτ , 1/N + Λτ ] → Γ0 (N )τ. (b) The moduli space for Γ1 (N ) is S1 (N ) = {[Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] : τ ∈ H}. Two points [Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] and [Eτ , 1/N + Λτ ] are equal if and only if Γ1 (N )τ = Γ1 (N )τ . Thus there is a bijection ∼ ψ1 : S1 (N ) −→ Y1 (N ), [C/Λτ , 1/N + Λτ ] → Γ1 (N )τ.

If N is the order of K as a subgroup then K ⊂ E[N ] ∼ = Z/N Z × Z/N Z, and so by the theory of ﬁnite Abelian groups K ∼ = Z/nZ × Z/nn Z for some positive integers n and n . The multiply-by-n isogeny [n] of C/Λ takes K to a cyclic subgroup nK isomorphic to Z/n Z, and then the quotient isogeny π from C/Λ to C/nK has kernel nK. Follow this by the map C/nK −→ C/Λ given by z + nK → (m/n)z + (m/n)nK, now viewing nK as a lattice in C. This map makes sense and is an isomorphism since (m/n)nK = mK = Λ .

N∈Z To show that the Laurent series truncates from the left to a power series it suﬃces to show that lim ((f [α]k )(τ ) · qN ) = 0. qN →0 If α ﬁxes ∞ then this is immediate from the Fourier series of f itself. 2 Congruence subgroups 23 lim |(f [α]k )(τ ) · qN | ≤ C lim (y r−k |qN |). qN →0 qN →0 Recalling that qN = e , show that y = C log(1/|qN |), and use the fact that polynomials dominate logarithms to complete the proof. 7. 4. 8.
