We extend the methods of Wiles and of Taylor and Wiles from GL2 to higher rank unitary groups and establish the automorphy of suitable conjugate self-dual, regular (de Rham with distinct Hodge–Tate numbers), minimally ramified, l-adic lifts of certain automorphic mod l Galois representations of any dimension. We also make a conjecture about the structure of mod l automorphic forms on definite unitary groups, which would generalise a lemma of Ihara for GL2. Following Wiles’ method we show that this conjecture implies that our automorphy lifting theorem could be extended to cover lifts that are not minimally ramified.
