L-Functions of Elliptic Curves and Modular Forms

  • Ehud de Shalit


In the previous chapter we examined representations of Galois groups of global fields into GL(n, ℂ), and their L-functions. Such representations are necessarily of finite image. We saw at the end that an important example is supplied by modular forms of weight 1.
