Families of modular forms. (English) Zbl 1052.11036
The author gives a down-to-earth introduction to the theory of \(p\)-adic families of modular forms, and presents an elementary proof of D. Wan’s result [Invent. Math. 133, No. 2, 449–463 (1998; Zbl 0907.11016)] that the Newton polygon of the \(U_p\)-operator acting on \(S_k(\Gamma_1(N_p))\) is bounded below by an explicit quadratic lower bound which is independent of \(k\) (Theorem 3).
