Let V be a p-adic representation of Gal(Q/Q). One of the ideas of Wiles's proof of FLT is that, if V is the representation associated to a suitable autromorphic form (a modular form in his case) and if V' is another p-adic representation of Gal(Q/Q) "closed enough" to V, then V' is also associated to an automorphic form. In this paper we discuss which kind… (More)
