Meromorphic continuation for the zeta function of a Dwork hypersurface

Thomas Barnet-Lamb

Vol. 4 (2010), No. 7, 839–854
Abstract

We consider the one-parameter family of hypersurfaces in ${ℙ}^{5}$ over $ℚ$ with projective equation $\left({X}_{1}^{5}+{X}_{2}^{5}+{X}_{3}^{5}+{X}_{4}^{5}+{X}_{5}^{5}\right)=5t{X}_{1}{X}_{2}\dots {X}_{5}$, proving that the Galois representations attached to their cohomologies are potentially automorphic, and hence that the zeta function of the family has meromorphic continuation to the whole complex plane.
