 Ph.D. Thesis
(Warning: There are some minor mistakes in Chapter 2: some of the results
should be stated only for newform quotients; also the proof of the
result regarding the relation between the Manin constant,
congruence primes and the modular degree has a gap.
Please refer to the Manin constant article
above for the correct statements).
