Abstract

We compute the cohomology H*(H,k)=Ext*H(k,k) where H=H(n,q) is the Hecke algebra of the symmetric group Sn at a primitive lth root of unity q, and k is a field of characteristic zero. The answer is particularly interesting when l = 2, which is the only case where it is not graded commutative. We also carry out the corresponding computation for Hecke algebras of type Bn and Dn when l is odd.
