Title:  On modular Galois representations modulo prime powers
 
Abstract:
 
In the talk we motivate the study of modular Galois
representations modulo prime powers by a natural number
theoretic question. We go on to state and explain a result,
obtained together with Imin Chen and Ian Kiming, about
removing powers of p from the level of a Hecke eigenform
modulo p^m, at the expense of working with so-called dc-weak
eigenforms
 
(dc = divided congruences).
