Represent. Theory 1 (1997), 83-114


This article gives a self-contained treatment of the theory of Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials with special emphasis on affine reflection groups. There are only a few new results but several new proofs. We close with a conjectural character formula for tilting modules, which formed the starting point of these investigations.
