Schur algebras, Hecke algebras of type B


Proc. London Math. Soc. (3), 77(1998), 327-361.


In this paper we use the Hecke algebra of type B to define a new algebra S which is an analogue of the q-Schur algebra. We construct Weyl modules for S and obtain, as factor modules, a family of irreducible S-modules over any field.
