Abstract: The rational Cherednik algebra $ \mathbb{H}$ is a certain algebra of differential-reflection operators attached to a complex reflection group $ W$ and depending on a set of central parameters. Each irreducible representation $ S^\lambda$ of $ W$ corresponds to a standard module $ M(\lambda)$ for $ \mathbb{H}$. This paper deals with the infinite family $ G(r,1,n)$ of complex reflection groups; our goal is to study the standard modules using a commutative subalgebra $ \mathfrak{t}$ of $ \mathbb{H}$ discovered by Dunkl and Opdam. In this case, the irreducible $ W$-modules are indexed by certain sequences $ \lambda$ of partitions. We first show that $ \mathfrak{t}$ acts in an upper triangular fashion on each standard module $ M(\lambda)$, with eigenvalues determined by the combinatorics of the set of standard tableaux on $ \lambda$. As a consequence, we construct a basis for $ M(\lambda)$ consisting of orthogonal functions on $ \mathbb{C}^n$ with values in the representation $ S^\lambda$. For $ G(1,1,n)$ with $ \lambda=(n)$ 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 $ M(\lambda)$ 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 $ \mathbb{H}$ so that the rational Cherednik algebra for $ G(r,p,n)$ is the fixed subalgebra. Our results therefore descend to the rational Cherednik algebra for $ G(r,p,n)$ by Clifford theory.
