Hecke algebra representations of braid groups and link polynomials

We describe here a Markov theorem for links in S 2 S 1 using the braid groups corresponding to the Coxeter groups of type B l. See the theorem in x3. We will work on a more general setting. The only reason here to single out S 2 S 1 is its simplicity. It is possible that all the other Artin groups will turn out to be useful in the study of links in 3-manifolds.
