Abstract: The rational Cherednik algebra is a certain algebra of differential-reflection operators attached to a complex reflection group and depending on a set of central parameters. Each irreducible representation of corresponds to a standard module for . This paper deals with the infinite family of complex reflection groups; our goal is to study the standard modules using a commutative subalgebra of discovered by Dunkl and Opdam. In this case, the irreducible -modules are indexed by certain sequences of partitions. We first show that acts in an upper triangular fashion on each standard module , with eigenvalues determined by the combinatorics of the set of standard tableaux on . As a consequence, we construct a basis for consisting of orthogonal functions on with values in the representation . For with these functions are the non-symmetric Jack polynomials. We use intertwining operators to deduce a norm formula for our orthogonal functions and give an explicit combinatorial description of the lattice of submodules of in the case in which the orthogonal functions are all well-defined. A consequence of our results is the construction of a number of interesting finite dimensional modules with intricate structure. Finally, we show that for a certain choice of parameters there is a cyclic group of automorphisms of so that the rational Cherednik algebra for is the fixed subalgebra. Our results therefore descend to the rational Cherednik algebra for by Clifford theory.
