The Langlands-Kottwitz approach for the modular curve. (English) Zbl 1309.14019
The object of this paper is to determine Hasse-Weil zeta functions of modular curves. The local factors at the places of good reduction were previously determined by R. E. Kottwitz [Math. Ann. 269, 287–300 (1984; Zbl 0533.14009)] using the trace formula for the Frobenius automorphism. Their methods are extended in this paper to the places of bad reduction. The methods of this paper have been further extended by the author to obtain the zeta functions of some other Shimura varieties [P. Scholze, Invent. Math. 192, No. 3, 627–661 (2013; Zbl 1309.14020)].
