Abstract: We consider Calabi–Yau varieties of dimension d at most 3 defined over Q, and address the modularity/automorphy question of such Calabi–Yau varieties `a la Langlands. When the dimension of the associated Galois representations are large (for instance, > 2), the problem poses a serious challenge and is out of reach in the general situations. In this talk, I will concentrate on Calabi–Yau varieties of CM type, and establish their (motivic) mod- ularity/automorphy. The presentation is focused on the two examples: • d = 2: K3 surfaces with non-symplectic automorphisms, and • d = 3: Calabi–Yau threefolds of Borcea–Voisin type. If time permits, we will discuss arithmetic mirror symmetry for K3 surfaces.
