Extensions of modules for graded Hecke algebras

Graded affine Hecke algebras were introduced by Lusztig for studying the representation theory of p-adic groups. In particular, some problems about extensions of representations of p-adic groups can be transferred to problems in the graded Hecke algebra setting. The study of extensions gives insight to the structure of various reducible modules. In this talk, I shall discuss some methods of computing Ext-groups for graded Hecke algebras.
The talk is based on arXiv:1410.1495, arXiv:1510.05410 and forthcoming work.
