Abstract: We study unitarity of lowest weight irreducible representations of rational Cherednik algebras. We prove several general results, and use them to determine which lowest weight representations are unitary in a number of cases.

In particular, in type A, we give a full description of the unitarity locus (justified in Subsection 5.1 and the appendix written by S. Griffeth), and resolve a question by Cherednik on the unitarity of the irreducible subrepresentation of the polynomial representation. Also, as a by-product, we establish Kasatani's conjecture in full generality (the previous proof by Enomoto assumes that the parameter is not a half-integer).
