On the image of the Galois representation associated to a non-CM Hida family

Jaclyn Lang

Vol. 10 (2016), No. 1, 155–194

Fix a prime p > 2. Let ρ : Gal( ¯) GL2(I) be the Galois representation coming from a non-CM irreducible component I of Hida’s p-ordinary Hecke algebra. Assume the residual representation ρ̄ is absolutely irreducible. Under a minor technical condition we identify a subring I0 of I containing p[[T]] such that the image of ρ is large with respect to I0. That is, Imρ contains ker(SL2(I0) SL2(I0a)) for some nonzero I0-ideal a. This paper builds on recent work of Hida who showed that the image of such a Galois representation is large with respect to p[[T]]. Our result is an I-adic analogue of the description of the image of the Galois representation attached to a non-CM classical modular form obtained by Ribet and Momose in the 1980s.
