# Algebraic numbers and Selberg class

Hello,

I would like to know whether, given an algebraic number $\alpha$ of degree $d$, the Dedekind Zeta function $\zeta_{\mathbb{Q}(\alpha)}$ is always a function of the Selberg class of degree $d$ of not. I know that it is true when $\mathbb{Q}(\alpha)$ is an abelian extension of $\mathbb{Q}$, but what about the non abelian case? Thank you in advance.

Perhaps it is worthwhile to remark that if $\pi$ is a cuspidal automorphic representation of $\mathrm{GL}(n)$ over a number field with unitary central character, and $\pi$ satisfies the Ramanujan conjecture, then $L(s,\pi)$ is in the Selberg class. Moreover, it is expected that any element in the Selberg class is of that form. –  GH from MO Jun 22 '11 at 4:02
