Volume 42 / 1998

This paper is an expanded version of a talk given at the Banach Center Symposium on Knot Theory in July/August 1995. Its aim is to provide a general survey about trace functions on Iwahori-Hecke algebras associated with finite Coxeter groups. The so-called Markov traces are relevant to knot theory as they can be used to construct invariants of oriented knots and links. We present a classification of Markov traces for the classical types A, B and D.
