To each regular algebraic, conjugate self-dual, cuspidal automorphic representation Π of GL(N) over a CM number field E (or, more generally, to a regular algebraic isobaric sum of conjugate self-dual, cuspidal representations), we can attach a continuous ℓ-adic Galois representation r(Π) of the absolute Galois group of E. The residual Galois representation r̅(Π):GalE̅/E)→GL_N(Fℓ) of π is defined to be the semi-simplification of the reduction of r(Π) (modulo the maximal ideal of Z̅ℓ), with respect to any invariant Z̅ℓ-lattice. The aim of this thesis is to prove a level raising theorem for automorphic representations of GL(2n). More precisely, given a regular algebraic automorphic representation Π of GL(2n) over E, which is either unitary, conjugate self-dual and cuspidal or an isobaric sum Π₁ ⊞Π₂ of two unitary, conjugate self-dual cuspidal representations of GL(n), we want to construct a unitary, conjugate self-dual cuspidal representation Π' of GL(2n) that has the same residual Galois representation as Π and whose component at a finite place w of E is an unramified twist of the Steinberg representation. We prove that this is possible, after replacing Π with its base change along a CM biquadratic extension, under certain assumptions on Π (including a local obstruction at the place w). Our proof uses the results of Kaletha, Minguez, Shin and White on the endoscopic classification of representations of (inner forms of) unitary groups to descend Π to an automorphic representation of a totally definite unitary group G over the maximal totally real subfield of E. We then prove a level raising theorem for the group G; we do this by proving an analogue of "Ihara's lemma" for G, using the strong approximation theorem for the derived subgroup of G.
