Integrality of Atkin-Lehner operator for $\Gamma_1(N)$

A result due to B. Conrad (http://math.stanford.edu/~conrad/papers/prasanna-inv.pdf, Theorem A.1) states that the Atkin-Lehner operator $w_{Q,k}$ is $\mathbb{Z}[1/Q]$-integral on $M_k(\Gamma_0(N))$. ...

How explain these remarkable empirical observations about mod 3 modular forms of levels 1 and 5?

Define $b(n)$ by $b(0)= 0$, $b(3n)= 9b(n)$, $b(3n+1)= 9b(n) + 1$, $b(3n+2)= 9b(n) + 3$. (This sequence does not show up in the OEIS, but the similar Moser-de Bruijn sequence A000695 appears in many ...

Local L-factors for automorphic representations

For Hecke L-functions associated to a holomorphic cusp form $f$ of level $N$, the local factors can be decomposed into $$L_p(s, f) = (1-\lambda_f(p)p^{-s} + \chi_N(p)p^{-2s})^{-1}$$ where $\chi_N$ is ...
