A combinatorial interpretation of Serre's conjecture on modular Galois representations

Adriaan Herremans (2003)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

We state a conjecture concerning modular absolutely irreducible odd 2-dimensional representations of the absolute Galois group over finite fields which is purely combinatorial (without using modular forms) and proof that it is equivalent to Serre’s strong conjecture. The main idea is to replace modular forms with coefficients in a finite field of characteristic p , by their counterparts in the theory of modular symbols.

Cohomology of the boundary of Siegel modular varieties of degree two, with applications

J. William Hoffman, Steven H. Weintraub (2003)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let 𝓐₂(n) = Γ₂(n)∖𝔖₂ be the quotient of Siegel's space of degree 2 by the principal congruence subgroup of level n in Sp(4,ℤ). This is the moduli space of principally polarized abelian surfaces with a level n structure. Let 𝓐₂(n)* denote the Igusa compactification of this space, and ∂𝓐₂(n)* = 𝓐₂(n)* - 𝓐₂(n) its "boundary". This is a divisor with normal crossings. The main result of this paper is the determination of H(∂𝓐₂(n)*) as a module over the finite group Γ₂(1)/Γ₂(n). As an application...
