Character Values of Iwahori-Hecke Algebras of Type B.
Reductive Groups, Related Structures and Representations
(M. Cabanes, ed.), Progress in Mathematics 141, Birkäuser,
In this article we determine the character table of the generic Iwahori-Hecke
algebra of type B. The main result follows from two deformations of the
Murnaghan-Nakayama formula for the character values of symmetric groups.
These two results are derived in the more general context of cyclotomic
algebras of type B which have recently been defined by Broué and Malle
and by Ariki and Koike.
