Abstract: In part 1, we motivated the definition of modular symbols for cusp forms of weight 2 by considering special values of L-functions of elliptic curves over the rationals. In part 2, we will generalize this definition to higher weights, define Hecke actions, and state the Eichler-Shimura Theorem.
