How does one compute the Hecke algebra acting on modular forms?

I asked this on mathstackexchange, but got no answer. Let $N\geq1$ be an integer, and let $\mathbb{T}$ be the Hecke algebra acting on the cusp forms of weight k and level $\Gamma_0(N)$. Then $\...

Hecke operators that lower level

I am working with weakly holomorphic modular functions (weight $=0$) $f \in M_0(\Gamma(N), \chi)$ of level $N$ with some character $\chi$ (We can ignore the character for now). Let $f \in M_0(\Gamma(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 ...

Origin of definitions of ramified Hecke operators

Consider a classical space $M_k(N)$ of elliptic modular forms of weight $k$ for $\Gamma_0(N)$. The definition of an unramified Hecke operator $T_{p^m}$ in terms of double cosets is the disjoint union ...

Volumes of Hecke operators

Let $G=GL(2, F)$ and $K$ a maximal compact subgroup. Unramified Hecke operators are defined by the action of the double cosets $$T(n) = \bigcup_{\substack{ad=n, a>0 \\ a|d}} K \left( \begin{array}{...

Ramanujan conjecture in terms of representations

Given an automorphic representation, I would like to bound $\alpha_1^\nu(p) + \alpha_2^\nu(p)$ where the $\alpha_i$ are the Satake parameters of an automorphic form $f$ of, say, $GL_2$. So that $\...

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 ...

What is the matter with Hecke operators?

This question is inspired by some others on MathOverflow. Hecke operators are standardly defined by double cosets acting on automorphic forms, in an explicit way. However, what bother me is that ...

Is every eigenvector sequence for the Hecke operators a eigenform?

Let $f(n) = a_n$ be a sequence taking values in $\mathbb C$ for $n=1,2,...$. Let $T_m$ be the Hecke operators (of a fixed weight $k$) defined as usual in terms of the $a_n$. That is: $$T_m(f)(n) = \...

Distribution relation in the Euler system of Heegner points

Hecke operator acting on Siegel modular forms

Let $F,G$ be Hecke eigenforms of weight $k$ and genus $2$. For any Hecke operator $T$ (either $T_q$ or $T_{q^2}$) let $\lambda_T(\star)$ be the correspondent eigenvalue. Assume that there exists a ...

Riemann hypothesis for the Hecke operators and modular forms

Let $f(z) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty a(n) e^{2i \pi nz}$ be an eigenform of $S_k(\Gamma_0(N))$. Since the Hecke operator acts by $T_p f = a_p f$ the Riemann hypothesis for $f$'s L-function is $$ \!\!\! \!\...
