This chapter provides the first, informal description of the algorithms. It explains how the computation of the Galois representations V attached to modular forms over finite fields should proceed. The essential step is to approximate the minimal polynomial P of (3.1) with sufficient precision so that P itself can be obtained.

Keywords:   modular forms, algorithms, Galois representation, finite fields
