The Birch and SwinnertonDyer
conjectural formula
J 0 (N) = Jacobian of the modular curve X 0 (N)
T = Hecke algebra
f = a newform s.t. L(f, 1) #= 0
I f = Ann T f , an ideal of T
A = A f = J 0 (N)/I f J 0 (N),
the Shimura quotient associated to f
Conjecture 1 (Birch, SwinnertonDyer, Tate,
Gross).
L(A, 1)
