AbstractThis paper is the first part of a work which proves Serre’s modularity conjecture. We first prove the cases $p\not=2$ and odd conductor, and p=2 and weight 2, see Theorem 1.2, modulo Theorems 4.1 and 5.1. Theorems 4.1 and 5.1 are proven in the second part, see Khare and Wintenberger (Invent. Math., doi:10.1007/s00222-009-0206-6, 2009). We then reduce the general case to a modularity statement for 2-adic lifts of modular mod 2 representations. This statement is now a theorem of Kisin… Expand
The Sato–Tate Conjecture for the Ramanujan τ-Function
Ramanujan’s 1916 conjecture that |τ(p)|≤2p 11/2 was proved in 1974 by P. Deligne, as a consequence of his work on the Weil conjectures. Serre, and later Langlands, discussed the possible distributionExpand
Strong modularity of reducible Galois representations
In this paper, we call strongly modular those reducible semi-simple odd mod $l$ Galois representations for which the conclusion of the strongest form of Serre's original modularity conjecture holds.Expand

Some Generalized Fermat-type Equations via Q-Curves and Modularity
