Optimal levels for modular mod 2 representations over totally real fields

Doc. Math. (Bielefeld) Extra Vol. John H. Coates' Sixtieth Birthday, 533-550 (2006)


In this paper, we study the level lowering problem for mod 2 representations of the absolute Galois group of a totally real field ${F}$. In the case ${F}=\Bbb Q$, this was done by Buzzard; here, we generalise some of Buzzard's results to higher weight and arbitrary totally real fields, using Rajaei's generalisation of Ribet's theorem and previous work of Fujiwara and the author.
