We construct certain representations of affine Hecke algebras and Weyl groups, which depend on several auxiliary parameters. We refer to these as “metaplectic” representations, and as a direct consequence we obtain a family of “metaplectic” polynomials, which generalizes the well-known Macdonald polynomials.

Our terminology is motivated by the fact that if the parameters are specialized to certain Gauss sums, then our construction recovers the Kazhdan-Patterson action on metaplectic forms for GL(n); more generally it recovers the Chinta-Gunnells action on p-parts of Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series.

This is joint work with Jasper Stokman and Vidya Venkateswaran.
