In this thesis, a new class of algebras called quantized multiplicative quiver varieties A (Q), is constructed, depending upon a quiver Q, its dimension vector d, and a certain "moment map" parameter . The algebras Ad(Q) are obtained via quantum Hamiltonian reduction of another algebra D,(Matd(Q)) relative to a quantum moment map pq, both of which are also constructed herein. The algebras Dq(Matd(Q)) and A (Q) bear relations to many constructions in representation theory, some of which are spelled out herein, and many more whose precise formulation remains conjectural. When Q consists of a single vertex of dimension N with a single loop, the algebra Dq(MatA(Q)) is isomorphic to the algebra of quantum differential operators on G = GLN. In this case, for any n E Z>o, we construct a functor from the category of Dq-modules to representations of the type A double affine Hecke algebra of rank n. This functor is an instance of a more general construction which may be applied to any quasi-triangular Hopf algebra H, and yields representations of the elliptic braid group of rank n.
