Abstract:

The Hecke algebra for the hyperoctahedral group contains the Hecke algebra for the symmetric group as a subalgebra. Inducing the index representation of the subalgebra gives a Hecke algebra module, which splits multiplicity free. The corresponding zonal spherical functions are calculated in terms of $q$-Krawtchouk polynomials using the quantised enveloping algebra for ${\mathfrak{sl}}(2,\mathbb{C} )$. The result covers a number of previously established interpretations of ($q$-)Krawtchouk polynomials on the hyperoctahedral group, finite groups of Lie type, hypergroups and the quantum $SU(2)$ group.
