Affine Hecke algebra

Definition

Let $V$ be a Euclidean space of a finite dimension and $Sigma$ an affine root system on $V$. An affine Hecke algebra is a certain associative algebra that deforms the group algebra $mathbb\left\{C\right\} \left[W\right]$ of the Weyl group $W$ of $Sigma$ (the affine Weyl group). It is usually denoted by $H\left(Sigma,q\right)$, where $q:Sigma ightarrow mathbb\left\{C\right\}$ is multiplicity function that plays the role of deformation parameter. For $qequiv 1$ the affine Hecke algebra $H\left(Sigma,q\right)$ indeed reduces to $mathbb\left\{C\right\} \left[W\right]$.

Generalizations

Ivan Cherednik introduced generalizations of affine Hecke algebras, the so-called double affine Hecke algebra (usually referred to as DAHA). Using this he was able to give a prove of Macdonald's constant term conjecture for Macdonald polynomials (building on work of Eric Opdam). Another main inspiration for Cherednik to consider the double affine Hecke algebra was the quantum KZ-equations.
