thesis / dissertation description
A considerable amount of evidence has shown that for every prime p ≠q; N observed, a simultaneous eigenvector v_0 of Hecke operators T(l,i), i=1,2, in H^3(Γ_0(N),F(0,0,0)) has a “lift” v in H^3(Γ_0(N),F(p−1,0,0)) — i.e., a simultaneous eigenvector v of Hecke operators having the same system of eigenvalues that v_0 has. For each prime p>3 and N=11 and 17, we construct a vector v that is in the cohomology group H^3(Γ_0(N),F(p−1,0,0)). This is the first construction of an element of infinitely many different cohomology groups, other than modulo p reductions of characteristic zero objects. We proceed to show that v is an eigenvector of the Hecke operators T(2,1) and T(2,2) for p>3. Furthermore, we demonstrate that in many cases, v is a simultaneous eigenvector of all the Hecke operators.
