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 5 over with projective equation (X15 + X25 + X35 + X45 + X55) = 5tX1X2X5, 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.
