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 a Conjecture of Chowla and Milnor
In this paper, we investigate a conjecture due to S. and P. Chowla and
its generalization by Milnor. These are related to the delicate
question of nonvanishing of $L$functions associated to periodic
functions at integers greater than $1$. We report on some progress in
relation to these conjectures. In a different vein, we link them to a
conjecture of Zagier on multiple zeta values and also to linear
independence of polylogarithms.

On Higher Moments of Fourier Coefficients of Holomorphic Cusp Forms
Let $S_{k}(\Gamma)$ be the space of holomorphic cusp forms of even
integral weight $k$ for the full modular group.
Let $\lambda_f(n)$ and $\lambda_g(n)$ be the $n$th normalized Fourier coefficients of
two holomorphic Hecke eigencuspforms $f(z), g(z) \in S_{k}(\Gamma)$, respectively.
In this paper we are able to show the following results about higher
moments of Fourier coefficients of holomorphic cusp forms.\newline
(i) For any $\varepsilon>0$, we have
\begin{equation*}
\sum_{n\leq x}\lambda_f^5(n) \ll_{f,\varepsilon}x^{\frac{15}{16}+\varepsilon}
\quad\text{and}\quad\sum_{n\leq x}\lambda_f^7(n) \ll_{f,\varepsilon}x^{\frac{63}{64}+\varepsilon}.
\end{equation*}
(ii) If $\operatorname{sym}^3\pi_f \ncong \operatorname{sym}^3\pi_g$, then for any $\varepsilon>0$, we have
\begin{equation*}
\sum_{n \leq x}\lambda_f^3(n)\lambda_g^3(n)\ll_{f,\varepsilon}x^{\frac{31}{32}+\varepsilon};
\end{equation*}
If $\operatorname{sym}^2\pi_f \ncong \operatorname{sym}^2\pi_g$, then for any $\varepsilon>0$, we have
\[
\sum_{n \leq x}\lambda_f^4(n)\lambda_g^2(n)=cx\log x+c'x+O_{f,\varepsilon}\bigl(x^{\frac{31}{32}+\varepsilon}\bigr);
\]
If $\operatorname{sym}^2\pi_f \ncong \operatorname{sym}^2\pi_g$ and $\operatorname{sym}^4\pi_f \ncong \operatorname{sym}^4\pi_g$, then for any $\varepsilon>0$, we have
\[
\sum_{n \leq x}\lambda_f^4(n)\lambda_g^4(n)=xP(\log x)+O_{f,\varepsilon}\bigl(x^{\frac{127}{128}+\varepsilon}\bigr),
\]
where $P(x)$ is a polynomial of degree $3$.

A Variant of Lehmer's Conjecture, II: The CMcase
Let $f$ be a normalized Hecke eigenform with rational integer Fourier
coefficients. It is an interesting question to know how often an
integer $n$ has a factor common with the $n$th Fourier coefficient of
$f$. It has been shown in previous papers that this happens very often. In this
paper, we give an asymptotic formula for the number of integers $n$
for which $(n, a(n)) = 1$, where $a(n)$ is the $n$th Fourier coefficient of
a normalized Hecke eigenform $f$ of weight $2$ with rational integer
Fourier coefficients and having complex multiplication.

An Elementary Proof of a Weak Exceptional Zero Conjecture
In this paper we extend Darmon's theory of ``integration on $\uh_p\times \uh$''
to cusp forms $f$ of higher even weight. This enables us to prove a ``weak
exceptional zero conjecture'': that when the $p$adic $L$function of $f$ has
an exceptional zero at the central point, the $\mathcal{L}$invariant arising is
independent of a twist by certain Dirichlet characters.

Ternary Diophantine Equations via Galois Representations and Modular Forms
In this paper, we develop techniques for solving ternary Diophantine
equations of the shape $Ax^n + By^n = Cz^2$, based upon the theory of
Galois representations and modular forms. We subsequently utilize
these methods to completely solve such equations for various choices
of the parameters $A$, $B$ and $C$. We conclude with an application
of our results to certain classical polynomialexponential equations,
such as those of RamanujanNagell type.

On RussellType Modular Equations
In this paper, we revisit Russelltype modular equations, a
collection of modular equations first studied systematically by
R.~Russell in 1887. We give a proof of Russell's main theorem and
indicate the relations between such equations and the constructions
of Hilbert class fields of imaginary quadratic fields. Motivated by
Russell's theorem, we state and prove its cubic analogue which
allows us to construct Russelltype modular equations in the theory
of signature~$3$.
