@article{Khare2009SerresMC, title={Serre’s modularity conjecture (I)}, author={Chandrashekhar Khare and Jean-Pierre Wintenberger}, journal={Inventiones mathematicae}, year={2009}, volume={178}, pages={485-504} }

AbstractThis paper is the first part of a work which proves Serre’s modularity conjecture. We first prove the cases
$p\not=2$
and odd conductor, and p=2 and weight 2, see Theorem 1.2, modulo Theorems 4.1 and 5.1. Theorems 4.1 and 5.1 are proven in the second part, see Khare and Wintenberger (Invent. Math., doi:10.1007/s00222-009-0206-6, 2009). We then reduce the general case to a modularity statement for 2-adic lifts of modular mod 2 representations. This statement is now a theorem of Kisin… Expand
