Abstract In this talk I will review recent research joint with Ben Brubaker, Valentin Buciumas and Daniel Bump on certain solvable lattice models and related quantum groups connected to Whittaker functions in non-archimedean representation theory.
Historically, one motivation for finding such lattice models was to study and compute Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series via Whittaker functions on metaplectic n-covers of GL_r. I will describe how the connections between all these different objects were developed and the benefits of introducing solvable lattice models. Lastly, I will discuss interesting new results for metaplectic Whittaker functions coming from the connection to lattice models that hint of a symmetry between the rank r and the degree n of the cover.
