Modularity of an odd icosahedral representation
Journal de théorie des nombres de Bordeaux, Volume 12 (2000) no. 2, pp. 475-482.

In this paper, we prove that the representation ρ from G in GL 2 () with image A 5 in PGL 2 (A 5 ) corresponding to the example 16 in [B-K] is modular. This representation has conductor 5203 and determinant χ -43 ; its modularity was not yet proved, since this representation does not satisfy the hypothesis of the theorems of [B-D-SB-T] and [Tay2].

Dans cet article, nous démontrons que la représentation ρ de G dans GL 2 () d’image A 5 dans PGL 2 (A 5 ) correspondant à l’exemple 16 dans [B-K] est modulaire. Cette représentation est de conducteur 5203 et de déterminant χ -43 . La modularité de cette représentation n’était pas encore prouvée ; en effet, elle ne vérifie pas les hypothèses des théorèmes de [B-D-SB-T] et [Tay2].
