Lin, Qiang (2004) BlochKato conjecture for the adjoint of H1(X0(N)) with integral Hecke algebra. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd11182003084742
Abstract
Let M be a motive that is defined over a number field and admits an action of a finite dimensional semisimple Qalgebra T. David Burns and Matthias Flach formulated a conjecture, which depends on a choice of Zorder T in T, for the leading coefficient of the Taylor expansion at 0 of the Tequivariant Lfunction of M. For primes l outside a finite set we prove the lprimary part of this conjecture for the specific case where M is the trace zero part of the adjoint of H^1(X_0(N)) for prime N and where T is the (commutative) integral Hecke algebra for cusp forms of weight 2 and the congruence group [Gamma_0](N), thus providing one of the first nontrivial supporting examples for the conjecture in a geometric situation where T is not the maximal order of T. We also compare two Selmer groups, one of which appears in BlochKato conjecture and the other a slight variant of what is defined by A. Wiles. A result on the FontaineLaffaille modules with coefficients in a local ring finite free over Z_l is obtained.
