Abstract: By using Deodhar's combinatorial setting and Bernstein-Gelfand projective functors, this paper provides some necessary and sufficient conditions for a highest weight category to have a Kazhdan-Lusztig theory. A consequence of these conditions is that in the semisimple Lie algebra case, the Kazhdan-Lusztig conjecture on the multiplicities of a Verma module implies the nonnegativity conjecture on the coefficients of Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials.
