Abstract: Let $ \mathcal{H}_{n,r}$ be the Ariki-Koike algebra associated to the complex reflection group $ \mathfrak{S}_n\ltimes (\mathbb{Z}/r\mathbb{Z})^n$, and let $ \mathcal{S}(\varLambda)$ be the cyclotomic $ q$-Schur algebra associated to $ \mathcal{H}_{n,r}$, introduced by Dipper, James and Mathas. For each $ \mathbf{p} = (r_1, \dots, r_g) \in \mathbb{Z}_{>0}^g$ such that $ r_1 +\cdots + r_g = r$, we define a subalgebra $ \mathcal{S}^{\mathbf{p}}$ of $ \mathcal{S}(\varLambda)$ and its quotient algebra $ \overline{\mathcal{S}}^{\mathbf{p}}$. It is shown that $ \mathcal{S}^{\mathbf{p}}$ is a standardly based algebra and $ \overline{\mathcal{S}}^{\mathbf{p}}$ is a cellular algebra. By making use of these algebras, we prove a product formula for decomposition numbers of $ \mathcal{S}(\varLambda)$, which asserts that certain decomposition numbers are expressed as a product of decomposition numbers for various cyclotomic $ q$-Schur algebras associated to Ariki-Koike algebras $ \mathcal{H}_{n_i,r_i}$ of smaller rank. This is a generalization of the result of N. Sawada. We also define a modified Ariki-Koike algebra $ \overline{\mathcal{H}}^{\mathbf{p}}$ of type $ \mathbf{p}$, and prove the Schur-Weyl duality between $ \overline{\mathcal{H}}^{\mathbf{p}}$ and $ \overline{\mathcal{S}}^{\mathbf{p}}$.
