@article{Buzzard2003ACT, title={A counterexample to the Gouv{\^e}a–Mazur conjecture}, author={Kevin Buzzard and Frank Calegari}, journal={Comptes Rendus Mathematique}, year={2003}, volume={338}, pages={751-753} }

Abstract Gouvea and Mazur made a precise conjecture about slopes of modular forms. Weaker versions of this conjecture were established by Coleman and Wan. In this Note, we exhibit examples contradicting the full conjecture as it currently stands. To cite this article: K. Buzzard, F. Calegari, C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 338 (2004).

- 2016

We formulate a conjecture on slopes of overconvergent p-adic cuspforms of any p-adic weight in the Gamma_0(N)-regular case. This conjecture unifies a conjecture of Buzzard on classical slopes and… Expand
