I will explain a new construction of an Euler system for the symmetric square of an eigenform and its connection with Lvalues. The construction makes use of some simple Eisenstein cohomology classes for Sp(4) or, equivalently, SO(3,2). This is an example of a larger class of similarly constructed Euler systems.
This is a report on joint work with Marco Sangiovanni Vincentelli.
