7 There is a bijection (in fact a homeomorphism of Riemann surfaces) φ : C/Λ → EΛ (C) given by z → (℘(z), ℘ (z))(z ∈ Λ), z → ∞(z ∈ Λ). Proof: Ellipticity of ℘ and ℘ implies that φ is well-defined and (∗) shows that the image is in EΛ (C). To show surjectivity, given (x, y) ∈ EΛ (C) − {∞}, we consider ℘(z) − x, a nonconstant elliptic function with a pole (at 0) and so a zero, say at z = a. By (∗), ℘ (a)2 = y 2 . By oddness of ℘ and evenness of ℘, we see that φ(a) or φ(−a) is (x, y). To show injectivity, if φ(z1 ) = φ(z2 ) with 2z1 ∈ Λ, then consider ℘(z) − ℘(z1 ), which has a pole of order 2 and zeros at z1 , −z1 , z2 , so z2 ≡ ±z1 (mod Λ).

23 See [19], p. 336 on. ΦN (x) has coefficients in Z[j] and is irreducible over C(j) (and so is the minimal polynomial of jN over C(j)). The function field K(X0 (N )) = C(j, jN ). This enables us to define X0 (N ), a priori a curve over C, over Q. This means that it can be given by equations over Q. 4 Modular forms lxiii words, we have a model for X0 (N ) over Q with good reduction at primes not dividing N ). e. satisfy f (z) = f (σz) for all σ ∈ Γ0 (N ). This clearly holds for j since j is a modular function of weight 0 on all of SL2 (Z).

Proof: (a) Let σ ∈ G. Then σ acts on A, and sends m to m. Hence it acts on A/m = k. This defines a map φ : G → Gal(k/Fp ) by sending σ to the map x + m → σ(x) + m. We now examine the kernel of this map. ker φ = {σ ∈ G|σ(x) − x ∈ m for all x ∈ A} = {σ ∈ G|w(σ(x) − x) ≥ 1 for all x ∈ A} = G0 . This shows that φ induces an injective homomorphism from G/G0 to Gal(k/Fp ). As for surjectivity, choose a ∈ A such that the image a ¯ of a in k has k = Fp (¯ a). Let (x − σ(a)). p(x) = σ∈G Then p(x) is a monic polynomial with coefficients in A, and 3.
