On the asymptotic growth of Bloch-Kato--Shafarevich-Tate groups of modular forms over cyclotomic extensions
We study the asymptotic behaviour of the Bloch--Kato--Shafarevich--Tate group of a modular form $f$ over the cyclotomic $\mathbb{Z}_p$-extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ under the assumption that $f$ is non-ordinary at $p$. In particular, we give upper bounds of these groups in terms of Iwasawa invariants of Selmer groups defined using $p$-adic Hodge Theory. These bounds have the same form as the formulae of Kobayashi, Kurihara and Sprung for supersingular elliptic curves.

$L$-Functoriality for Local Theta Correspondence of Supercuspidal Representations with Unipotent Reduction
The preservation principle of local theta correspondences of reductive dual pairs over a $p$-adic field predicts the existence of a sequence of irreducible supercuspidal representations of classical groups. Adams/Harris-Kudla-Sweet have a conjecture about the Langlands parameters for the sequence of supercuspidal representations. In this paper we prove modified versions of their conjectures for the case of supercuspidal representations with unipotent reduction.

On Residues of Intertwining Operators in Cases with Prehomogeneous Nilradical
Let $\operatorname{P} = \operatorname{M} \operatorname{N}$ be a Levi decomposition of a maximal parabolic subgroup of a connected reductive group $\operatorname{G}$ over a $p$-adic field $F$. Assume that there exists $w_0 \in \operatorname{G}(F)$ that normalizes $\operatorname{M}$ and conjugates $\operatorname{P}$ to an opposite parabolic subgroup. When $\operatorname{N}$ has a Zariski dense $\operatorname{Int} \operatorname{M}$-orbit, F. Shahidi and X. Yu describe a certain distribution $D$ on $\operatorname{M}(F)$ such that, for irreducible unitary supercuspidal representations $\pi$ of $\operatorname{M}(F)$ with $\pi \cong \pi \circ \operatorname{Int} w_0$, $\operatorname{Ind}_{\operatorname{P}(F)}^{\operatorname{G}(F)} \pi$ is irreducible if and only if $D(f) \neq 0$ for some pseudocoefficient $f$ of $\pi$. Since this irreducibility is conjecturally related to $\pi$ arising via transfer from certain twisted endoscopic groups of $\operatorname{M}$, it is of interest to realize $D$ as endoscopic transfer from a simpler distribution on a twisted endoscopic group $\operatorname{H}$ of $\operatorname{M}$. This has been done in many situations where $\operatorname{N}$ is abelian. Here, we handle the `standard examples' in cases where $\operatorname{N}$ is nonabelian but admits a Zariski dense $\operatorname{Int} \operatorname{M}$-orbit.

La Variante infinitésimale de la formule des traces de Jacquet-Rallis pour les groupes unitaires
We establish an infinitesimal version of the Jacquet-Rallis trace formula for unitary groups. Our formula is obtained by integrating a truncated kernel à la Arthur. It has a geometric side which is a sum of distributions $J_{\mathfrak{o}}$ indexed by classes of elements of the Lie algebra of $U(n+1)$ stable by $U(n)$-conjugation as well as the "spectral side" consisting of the Fourier transforms of the aforementioned distributions. We prove that the distributions $J_{\mathfrak{o}}$ are invariant and depend only on the choice of the Haar measure on $U(n)(\mathbb{A})$. For regular semi-simple classes $\mathfrak{o}$, $J_{\mathfrak{o}}$ is a relative orbital integral of Jacquet-Rallis. For classes $\mathfrak{o}$ called relatively regular semi-simple, we express $J_{\mathfrak{o}}$ in terms of relative orbital integrals regularised by means of zêta functions.

$p$-adic Families of Cohomological Modular Forms for Indefinite Quaternion Algebras and the Jacquet-Langlands Correspondence
We use the method of Ash and Stevens to prove the existence of small slope $p$-adic families of cohomological modular forms for an indefinite quaternion algebra $B$. We prove that the Jacquet-Langlands correspondence relating modular forms on $\textbf{GL}_2/\mathbb{Q}$ and cohomomological modular forms for $B$ is compatible with the formation of $p$-adic families. This result is an analogue of a theorem of Chenevier concerning definite quaternion algebras.

Eigenvarieties for Cuspforms over PEL Type Shimura Varieties with Dense Ordinary locus
Let $p \gt 2$ be a prime and let $X$ be a compactified PEL Shimura variety of type (A) or (C) such that $p$ is an unramified prime for the PEL datum and such that the ordinary locus is dense in the reduction of $X$. Using the geometric approach of Andreatta, Iovita, Pilloni, and Stevens we define the notion of families of overconvergent locally analytic $p$-adic modular forms of Iwahoric level for $X$. We show that the system of eigenvalues of any finite slope cuspidal eigenform of Iwahoric level can be deformed to a family of systems of eigenvalues living over an open subset of the weight space. To prove these results, we actually construct eigenvarieties of the expected dimension that parameterize finite slope systems of eigenvalues appearing in the space of families of cuspidal forms.

Existence of Hilbert Cusp Forms with Non-vanishing $L$-values
We develop a derivative version of the relative trace formula on $\operatorname{PGL}(2)$ studied in our previous work, and derive an asymptotic formula of an average of central values (derivatives) of automorphic $L$-functions for Hilbert cusp forms. As an application, we prove the existence of Hilbert cusp forms with non-vanishing central values (derivatives) such that the absolute degrees of their Hecke fields are arbitrarily large.

Les $\theta$-régulateurs locaux d'un nombre algébrique : Conjectures $p$-adiques
Let $K/\mathbb{Q}$ be Galois and let $\eta\in K^\times$ be such that $\operatorname{Reg}_\infty (\eta) \ne 0$. We define the local $\theta$-regulators $\Delta_p^\theta(\eta) \in \mathbb{F}_p$ for the $\mathbb{Q}_p\,$-irreducible characters $\theta$ of $G=\operatorname{Gal}(K/\mathbb{Q})$. A linear representation ${\mathcal L}^\theta\simeq \delta \, V_\theta$ is associated with $\Delta_p^\theta (\eta)$ whose nullity is equivalent to $\delta \geq 1$. Each $\Delta_p^\theta (\eta)$ yields $\operatorname{Reg}_p^\theta (\eta)$ modulo $p$ in the factorization $\prod_{\theta}(\operatorname{Reg}_p^\theta (\eta))^{\varphi(1)}$ of $\operatorname{Reg}_p^G (\eta) := \frac{ \operatorname{Reg}_p(\eta)}{p^{[K : \mathbb{Q}\,]} }$ (normalized $p$-adic regulator). From $\operatorname{Prob}\big (\Delta_p^\theta(\eta) = 0 \ \& \ {\mathcal L}^\theta \simeq \delta \, V_\theta\big ) \leq p^{- f \delta^2}$ ($f \geq 1$ is a residue degree) and the Borel-Cantelli heuristic, we conjecture that, for $p$ large enough, $\operatorname{Reg}_p^G (\eta)$ is a $p$-adic unit or that $p^{\varphi(1)} \parallel \operatorname{Reg}_p^G (\eta)$ (a single $\theta$ with $f=\delta=1$); this obstruction may be lifted assuming the existence of a binomial probability law confirmed through numerical studies (groups $C_3$, $C_5$, $D_6$). This conjecture would imply that, for all $p$ large enough, Fermat quotients, normalized $p$-adic regulators are $p$-adic units and that number fields are $p$-rational. We recall some deep cohomological results that may strengthen such conjectures.

Heegner Points on Cartan Non-split Curves
Let $E/\mathbb{Q}$ be an elliptic curve of conductor $N$, and let $K$ be an imaginary quadratic field such that the root number of $E/K$ is $-1$. Let $\mathscr{O}$ be an order in $K$ and assume that there exists an odd prime $p$, such that $p^2 \mid\mid N$, and $p$ is inert in $\mathscr{O}$. Although there are no Heegner points on $X_0(N)$ attached to $\mathscr{O}$, in this article we construct such points on Cartan non-split curves. In order to do that we give a method to compute Fourier expansions for forms on Cartan non-split curves, and prove that the constructed points form a Heegner system as in the classical case.

Metaplectic Tensor Products for Automorphic Representation of $\widetilde{GL}(r)$
Let $M=\operatorname{GL}_{r_1}\times\cdots\times\operatorname{GL}_{r_k}\subseteq\operatorname{GL}_r$ be a Levi subgroup of $\operatorname{GL}_r$, where $r=r_1+\cdots+r_k$, and $\widetilde{M}$ its metaplectic preimage in the $n$-fold metaplectic cover $\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_r$ of $\operatorname{GL}_r$. For automorphic representations $\pi_1,\dots,\pi_k$ of $\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_{r_1}(\mathbb{A}),\dots,\widetilde{\operatorname{GL}}_{r_k}(\mathbb{A})$, we construct (under a certain technical assumption, which is always satisfied when $n=2$) an automorphic representation $\pi$ of $\widetilde{M}(\mathbb{A})$ which can be considered as the ``tensor product'' of the representations $\pi_1,\dots,\pi_k$. This is the global analogue of the metaplectic tensor product defined by P. Mezo in the sense that locally at each place $v$, $\pi_v$ is equivalent to the local metaplectic tensor product of $\pi_{1,v},\dots,\pi_{k,v}$ defined by Mezo. Then we show that if all of $\pi_i$ are cuspidal (resp. square-integrable modulo center), then the metaplectic tensor product is cuspidal (resp. square-integrable modulo center). We also show that (both locally and globally) the metaplectic tensor product behaves in the expected way under the action of a Weyl group element, and show the compatibility with parabolic inductions.

Expression d'un facteur epsilon de paire par une formule intégrale
Let $E/F$ be a quadratic extension of $p$-adic fields and let $d$, $m$ be nonnegative integers of distinct parities. Fix admissible irreducible tempered representations $\pi$ and $\sigma$ of $GL_d(E)$ and $GL_m(E)$ respectively. We assume that $\pi$ and $\sigma$ are conjugate-dual. That is to say $\pi\simeq \pi^{\vee,c}$ and $\sigma\simeq \sigma^{\vee,c}$ where $c$ is the non trivial $F$-automorphism of $E$. This implies, we can extend $\pi$ to an unitary representation $\tilde{\pi}$ of a nonconnected group $GL_d(E)\rtimes \{1,\theta\}$. Define $\tilde{\sigma}$ the same way. We state and prove an integral formula for $\epsilon(1/2,\pi\times \sigma,\psi_E)$ involving the characters of $\tilde{\pi}$ and $\tilde{\sigma}$. This formula is related to the local Gan-Gross-Prasad conjecture for unitary groups.

Mahler Measures as Linear Combinations of $L$-values of Multiple Modular Forms
We study the Mahler measures of certain families of Laurent polynomials in two and three variables. Each of the known Mahler measure formulas for these families involves $L$-values of at most one newform and/or at most one quadratic character. In this paper, we show, either rigorously or numerically, that the Mahler measures of some polynomials are related to $L$-values of multiple newforms and quadratic characters simultaneously. The results suggest that the number of modular $L$-values appearing in the formulas significantly depends on the shape of the algebraic value of the parameter chosen for each polynomial. As a consequence, we also obtain new formulas relating special values of hypergeometric series evaluated at algebraic numbers to special values of $L$-functions.

Values of Twisted Tensor $L$-functions of Automorphic Forms Over Imaginary Quadratic Fields
Let $K$ be a complex quadratic extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ and let $\mathbb{A}_K$ denote the adeles of $K$. We find special values at all of the critical points of twisted tensor $L$-functions attached to cohomological cuspforms on $GL_2(\mathbb{A}_K)$, and establish Galois equivariance of the values. To investigate the values, we determine the archimedean factors of a class of integral representations of these $L$-functions, thus proving a conjecture due to Ghate. We also investigate analytic properties of these $L$-functions, such as their functional equations.

Symmetric Genuine Spherical Whittaker Functions on $\overline{GSp_{2n}(F)}$
Let $F$ be a p-adic field of odd residual characteristic. Let $\overline{GSp_{2n}(F)}$ and $\overline{Sp_{2n}(F)}$ be the metaplectic double covers of the general symplectic group and the symplectic group attached to the $2n$ dimensional symplectic space over $F$. Let $\sigma$ be a genuine, possibly reducible, unramified principal series representation of $\overline{GSp_{2n}(F)}$. In these notes we give an explicit formulas for a spanning set for the space of Spherical Whittaker functions attached to $\sigma$. For odd $n$, and generically for even $n$, this spanning set is a basis. The significant property of this set is that each of its elements is unchanged under the action of the Weyl group of $\overline{Sp_{2n}(F)}$. If $n$ is odd then each element in the set has an equivariant property that generalizes a uniqueness result of Gelbart, Howe and Piatetski-Shapiro. Using this symmetric set, we construct a family of reducible genuine unramified principal series representations which have more then one generic constituent. This family contains all the reducible genuine unramified principal series representations induced from a unitary data and exists only for $n$ even.

Transfer of Plancherel Measures for Unitary Supercuspidal Representations between $p$-adic Inner Forms
Let $F$ be a $p$-adic field of characteristic $0$, and let $M$ be an $F$-Levi subgroup of a connected reductive $F$-split group such that $\Pi_{i=1}^{r} SL_{n_i} \subseteq M \subseteq \Pi_{i=1}^{r} GL_{n_i}$ for positive integers $r$ and $n_i$. We prove that the Plancherel measure for any unitary supercuspidal representation of $M(F)$ is identically transferred under the local Jacquet-Langlands type correspondence between $M$ and its $F$-inner forms, assuming a working hypothesis that Plancherel measures are invariant on a certain set. This work extends the result of Muić and Savin (2000) for Siegel Levi subgroups of the groups $SO_{4n}$ and $Sp_{4n}$ under the local Jacquet-Langlands correspondence. It can be applied to a simply connected simple $F$-group of type $E_6$ or $E_7$, and a connected reductive $F$-group of type $A_{n}$, $B_{n}$, $C_n$ or $D_n$.

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 non-CM 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.

Iterated Integrals and Higher Order Invariants
We show that higher order invariants of smooth functions can be written as linear combinations of full invariants times iterated integrals. The non-uniqueness of such a presentation is captured in the kernel of the ensuing map from the tensor product. This kernel is computed explicitly. As a consequence, it turns out that higher order invariants are a free module of the algebra of full invariants.

Le lemme fondamental pondéré pour le groupe métaplectique
Dans cet article, on énonce une variante du lemme fondamental pondéré d'Arthur pour le groupe métaplectique de Weil, qui sera un ingrédient indispensable de la stabilisation de la formule des traces. Pour un corps de caractéristique résiduelle suffisamment grande, on en donne une démonstration à l'aide de la méthode de descente, qui est conditionnelle: on admet le lemme fondamental pondéré non standard sur les algèbres de Lie. Vu les travaux de Chaudouard et Laumon, on s'attend à ce que cette condition soit ultérieurement vérifiée.

Non-vanishing of $L$-functions, the Ramanujan Conjecture, and Families of Hecke Characters
We prove a non-vanishing result for families of $\operatorname{GL}_n\times\operatorname{GL}_n$ Rankin-Selberg $L$-functions in the critical strip, as one factor runs over twists by Hecke characters. As an application, we simplify the proof, due to Luo, Rudnick, and Sarnak, of the best known bounds towards the Generalized Ramanujan Conjecture at the infinite places for cusp forms on $\operatorname{GL}_n$. A key ingredient is the regularization of the units in residue classes by the use of an Arakelov ray class group.

$p$-adic $L$-functions and the Rationality of Darmon Cycles
Darmon cycles are a higher weight analogue of Stark--Heegner points. They yield local cohomology classes in the Deligne representation associated with a cuspidal form on $\Gamma _{0}( N) $ of even weight $k_{0}\geq 2$. They are conjectured to be the restriction of global cohomology classes in the Bloch--Kato Selmer group defined over narrow ring class fields attached to a real quadratic field. We show that suitable linear combinations of them obtained by genus characters satisfy these conjectures. We also prove $p$-adic Gross--Zagier type formulas, relating the derivatives of $p$-adic $L$-functions of the weight variable attached to imaginary (resp. real) quadratic fields to Heegner cycles (resp. Darmon cycles). Finally we express the second derivative of the Mazur--Kitagawa $p$-adic $L$-function of the weight variable in terms of a global cycle defined over a quadratic extension of $\mathbb{Q}$.
