# Free probability on Hecke algebras and certain group C*-algebras induced by Hecke algebras

Abstract. In this paper, by establishing free-probabilistic models on the Hecke algebras $$\mathcal{H}\left(GL_{2}(\mathbb{Q}_{p})\right)$$ induced by $$p$$-adic number fields $$\mathbb{Q}_{p}$$, we construct free probability spaces for all primes $$p$$. Hilbert-space representations are induced by such free-probabilistic structures. We study $$C^{*}$$-algebras induced by certain partial isometries realized under the representations.
Keywords: free probability, free moments, free cumulants, Hecke algebras, normal Hecke subalgebras, representations, groups, group $$C^{*}$$-algebras.
