An approach to nonsolvable base change and descent

Journal Article (Academic Article)

We present a collection of conjectural trace identities and explain why they are equivalent to base change and descent of automorphic representations of GL(n) along nonsolvable extensions (under some simplifying hypotheses). The case n = 2 is treated in more detail and applications towards the Artin conjecture for icosahedral Galois representations are given.
