Modular Abelian Varieties Over Number Fields
The main result of this paper is a characterization of the abelian
varieties $B/K$ defined over Galois number fields with the
property that the $L$function $L(B/K;s)$ is a product of
$L$functions of nonCM newforms over $\mathbb Q$ for congruence
subgroups of the form $\Gamma_1(N)$. The characterization involves the
structure of $\operatorname{End}(B)$, isogenies between the Galois conjugates of
$B$, and a Galois cohomology class attached to $B/K$.
We call the varieties having this property strongly modular.
The last section is devoted to the study of a family of abelian surfaces with quaternionic
multiplication.
As an illustration of the ways in which the general results of the paper can be applied
we prove the strong modularity of some particular abelian surfaces belonging to that family, and
we show how to find nontrivial examples of strongly modular varieties by twisting.

On the Dihedral Main Conjectures of Iwasawa Theory for Hilbert Modular Eigenforms
We construct a bipartite Euler system in the sense of Howard for Hilbert modular eigenforms of parallel
weight two over totally real fields, generalizing works of BertoliniDarmon, Longo, Nekovar, PollackWeston
and others. The construction has direct applications to Iwasawa main conjectures. For instance, it implies
in many cases one divisibility of the associated dihedral or anticyclotomic main conjecture, at the same
time reducing the other divisibility to a certain nonvanishing criterion for the associated $p$adic $L$functions.
It also has applications to cyclotomic main conjectures for Hilbert modular forms over CM fields via the technique
of Skinner and Urban.

NonExistence of Ramanujan Congruences in Modular Forms of Level Four
Ramanujan famously found congruences like $p(5n+4)\equiv 0
\operatorname{mod} 5$ for the partition
function. We provide a method to find all simple
congruences of this type in the coefficients of the inverse of a
modular form on $\Gamma_{1}(4)$ that is nonvanishing on the upper
half plane. This is applied to answer open questions about the
(non)existence of congruences in the generating functions for
overpartitions, crank differences, and 2colored $F$partitions.

Genus 2 Curves with Quaternionic Multiplication
We explicitly construct the canonical rational models of Shimura
curves, both analytically in terms of modular forms and
algebraically in terms of coefficients of genus 2 curves, in the
cases of quaternion algebras of discriminant 6 and 10. This emulates
the classical construction in the elliptic curve case. We also give
families of genus 2 QM curves, whose Jacobians are the corresponding
abelian surfaces on the Shimura curve, and with coefficients that
are modular forms of weight 12. We apply these results to show
that our $j$functions are supported exactly at those primes where
the genus 2 curve does not admit potentially good reduction, and
construct fields where this potentially good reduction is attained.
Finally, using $j$, we construct the fields of moduli and definition
for some moduli problems associated to the AtkinLehner group
actions.
