This chapter shows that Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series are expected to be Whittaker coefficients of metaplectic Eisenstein series. The fact that Whittaker coefficients of Eisenstein series reduce to the crystal description that was given in Chapter 2 is proved for Type A. On the adele group, the corresponding local computation reduces to the evaluation of a type of λ-adic integral. These were considered by McNamara, who reduced the integrals to sums over crystals by a very interesting method. A full treatment of this topic is outside the scope of this work, but it is introduced in this chapter by considering the case where n = 1. In this chapter, F is used to denote a nonarchimedean local field and F to denote a global field. The values of the Whittaker function are Schur polynomials multiplied by the normalization constant.
