This is Volume 2 of the Proceedings of the International Summer School on "Modular functions of one variable and arithmetical applications" which took place at RUCA, Antwerp University, from July 17 till August 3, 1972. It contains papers by W. Casselman, P. Deligne, R. Langlands and 1. 1. Piateckii-Shapiro. Its theme is the interplay between modular schemes for elliptic curves, and representations of GL(2). P.
