    Arithmetic level raising on triple product of Shimura curves and Gross-Schoen diagonal cycles II: Bipartite Euler system

    Full text link
    In this article, we study the Gross-Schoen diagonal cycle on the triple product of Shimura curves at a place of good reduction. We prove the unramified arithmetic level raising theorem for triple product of Shimura curves and we deduce from it the second reciprocity law which relates the image of the diagonal cycle under the Abel-Jacobi map to certain period integral of Gross-Kudla type. Along with the first reciprocity law we proved in a previous work, we show that the Gross-Schoen diagonal cycles form a Bipartite Euler system for the symmetric cube motive of modular forms. As an application we provide some evidence for the rank 11 case of the Bloch-Kato conjecture for the symmetric cube motive of a modular form

    Flach system on Quaternionic Hilbert--Blumenthal surfaces and distinguished periods

    Full text link
    We study arithmetic properties of certain quaternionic periods of Hilbert modular forms arising from base change of elliptic modular forms. These periods which we call the distinguished periods are closely related to the notion of distinguished representation that appear in work of Harder--Langlands--Rapoport, Lai, Flicker--Hakim on the Tate conjectures for the Hilbert--Blumenthal surfaces and their quaternionic analogues. In particular, we prove an integrality result on the ratio of the distinguished period and the quaternionic Peterson norm associated to the modular form. Our method is based on an Euler system argument initiated by Flach by producing elements in the motivic cohomologies of the quaternionic Hilbert--Blumenthal surfaces with control of their ramification behaviours. We show that these periods give natural bounds for certain subspaces of the Selmer groups of these quaternionic Hilbert--Blumenthal surfaces. The lengths of these subspaces can be determined by using the Taylor--Wiles method and can be related to the quaternionic Peterson norms of the modular forms
