In recent years there has been notable progress on the construction of Euler systems and their connection to special values of classical and p-adic L-functions. In this talk I will describe Euler systems associated to a triple (f,g,h) of classical (cuspidal or Eisenstein) modular forms and their relation with p-adic L-functions constructed by Hida, Harris and Tilouine, following ideas of Kato. As an application, I will explain how these Euler systems can be used to obtain new results on the arithmetic of elliptic curves when the rank of the Mordell-Weil group is 0, 1 or 2.
