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 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.

Expression d'un facteur epsilon de paire par une formule intÃ©grale 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.

Transfer of Plancherel Measures for Unitary Supercuspidal Representations between $p$-adic Inner Forms |
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
MuiÄ 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.

pondÃ©rÃ© non standard sur les algÃ¨bres de Lie. Vu les travaux de
Chaudouard et Laumon, on s'attend Ã ce que cette condition soit
ultÃ©rieurement vÃ©rifiÃ©e.

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.

Darmon's Points and Quaternionic Shimura Varieties In this paper, we generalize a conjecture due to Darmon and Logan in
an adelic setting. We study the relation between our construction and
Kudla's works on cycles on orthogonal Shimura varieties. This relation
allows us to conjecture a Gross-Kohnen-Zagier theorem for Darmon's
points.

$p$-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 $\mathbb{Q}$.

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 non-vanishing 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.

Non-Existence 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 non-vanishing 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 2-colored $F$-partitions.

Decomposition of Splitting Invariants in Split Real Groups For a maximal torus in a quasi-split semi-simple simply-connected group over a local field of characteristic $0$,
Langlands and Shelstad constructed a
cohomological invariant called the splitting invariant, which is an important
component of their endoscopic transfer factors. We study this invariant in the
case of a split real group and prove a
decomposition theorem which expresses this invariant for a general torus as a product of the corresponding
invariants for simple tori. We also show how this reduction formula allows for the comparison of splitting invariants
between different tori in the given real group.

Singular Moduli of Shimura Curves The $j$-function acts as a parametrization of the classical modular
curve. Its values at complex multiplication (CM) points are called
singular moduli and are algebraic integers. A Shimura curve is a
generalization of the modular curve and, if the Shimura curve has
genus~$0$, a rational parameterizing function exists and when
evaluated at a CM point is again algebraic over~$\mathbf{Q}$. This paper shows
that the coordinate maps given by N.~Elkies for the Shimura
curves associated to the quaternion algebras with discriminants $6$
and $10$ are Borcherds lifts of vector-valued modular forms. This
property is then used to explicitly compute the rational norms of
singular moduli on these curves. This method not only verifies
conjectural values for the rational CM points, but also provides a way
of algebraically calculating the norms of CM points with arbitrarily
large negative discriminant.

associated with a classical modular form of weight 4 and level 55.

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 CM-case
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.

Locally Indecomposable Galois Representations
In a previous paper
the authors showed that, under some technical
conditions,
the local Galois representations attached to the members of
a non-CM family of ordinary cusp forms are indecomposable for all
except possibly finitely many
members of the family. In this paper we use deformation theoretic
methods to give examples of non-CM families for
which every classical member of weight at least two has a locally
indecomposable Galois representation.

Reducibility of the Principal Series for Sp^{~}_{2}(F) over a p-adic Field Let $G_n=\mathrm{Sp}_n(F)$ be the rank $n$ symplectic group with
entries in a nondyadic $p$-adic field $F$. We further let $\widetilde{G}_n$ be
the metaplectic extension of $G_n$ by $\mathbb{C}^{1}=\{z\in\mathbb{C}^{\times}
\mid |z|=1\}$ defined using the Leray cocycle. In this paper, we aim to
demonstrate the complete list of reducibility points of the genuine
principal series of ${\widetilde{G}_2}$. In most cases, we will use
some techniques developed by TadiÄ that analyze the Jacquet
modules with respect to all of the parabolics containing a fixed
Borel. The exceptional cases involve representations induced from
unitary characters $\chi$ with $\chi^2=1$. Because such
representations $\pi$ are unitary, to show the irreducibility of
$\pi$, it suffices to show that
$\dim_{\mathbb{C}}\mathrm{Hom}_{{\widetilde{G}}}(\pi,\pi)=1$. We will accomplish this
by examining the poles of certain intertwining operators associated to
simple roots. Then some results of Shahidi and Ban decompose arbitrary
intertwining operators into a composition of operators corresponding
to the simple roots of ${\widetilde{G}_2}$. We will then be able to
show that all such operators have poles at principal series
representations induced from quadratic characters and therefore such
operators do not extend to operators in
$\mathrm{Hom}_{{\widetilde{G}_2}}(\pi,\pi)$ for the $\pi$ in question.

Heegner Points over Towers of Kummer Extensions
Let $E$ be an elliptic curve, and let $L_n$ be the Kummer extension
generated by a primitive $p^n$-th root of unity and a $p^n$-th root of
$a$ for a fixed $a\in \mathbb{Q}^\times-\{\pm 1\}$. A detailed case study
by Coates, Fukaya, Kato and Sujatha and V. Dokchitser has led these
authors to predict unbounded and strikingly regular growth for the
rank of $E$ over $L_n$ in certain cases. The aim of this note is to
explain how some of these predictions might be accounted for by
Heegner points arising from a varying collection of Shimura curve
parametrisations.
