Abstract: We apply Lusztig's theory of cells and asymptotic algebras to the Iwahori-Hecke algebra of a finite Weyl group extended by a group of graph automorphisms. This yields general results about splitting fields (extending earlier results by Digne-Michel) and decomposition matrices (generalizing earlier results by the author). Our main application is to establish an explicit formula for the number of simple modules in type $D_n$ (except in characteristic $2$), using the known results about type $B_n$ due to Dipper, James, and Murphy and Ariki and Mathas.
