• where G is the Galois group GaI ( I ) /Q) and F is a finite field of characteristic I > 3. Suppose that p is modular of level N, i.e., that it arises from a weight-2 newform of level dividing N and trivial "Nebentypus character." Then p is an odd representation: the matrix p(c) (where c is a complex conjugation in G) has eigenvalues + 1, 1. Since + 1 and 1 are distinct in F, p is absolutely irreducible and has a model over every subfield of F containing the set trace(p ). We assume that F has… CONTINUE READING
